When Celtic decided to bring back Brendan Rodgers as manager, following the exit of Ange Postecoglou, the general belief was that the club were going out and appointing the best option available. The Northern Irishman was a proven success in Scotland, having won seven trophies during his first stint at Parkhead and creating the team which went on to win the Quadruple Treble.

Rodgers might have been shown the exit door by Leicester City not too long ago. But his stint there was an overall success as well. He won the FA Cup and a Community Shield, and got them into Europe on more than one occasion.

Unfortunately, Celtic have been struggling this season under the management of Rodgers. And a lot of that could be down to the tactical changes he has made since coming in.

Celtic have moved away from Angeball and are now playing a slower and more methodical system. That does not seem to suit a lot of their best players though, most of whom were brought to the club during Postecoglou's time and shined under his management.

Kyogo Furuhashi is someone who has particularly struggled since the arrival of Rodgers. He was pretty much unplayable the past two seasons and scored 34 goals in the previous campaign.

Many even believed he was the best player Celtic had had since Henrik Larsson. This season, Kyogo has looked like a shadow of himself though.

A lot of that seems to be down to Rodgers' system. Kyogo's strengths are playing off the shoulder of the last defender and his movement in the box. Unfortunately, the slower build up play from Celtic has meant that those have been minimised.

Kyogo signed a long-term extension with Celtic not too long ago. But if things don't change, it would be understandable if he started to eye the exit.
