“Everyone wishes him to stay,” Kyogo reveals Celtic players want an Adam Idah return

Kyogo Furuhashi has spoken about his happiness for his fellow Celtic striker Adam Idah after the 23 year-old Irishman scored that 90th winner against theRangers at Hampden Park on Saturday afternoon in the 150th Scottish Cup Final.

Idah’s loan deal has now ended so technically his return to Norwich City has been confirmed. However as we have reported this morning, Brendan Rodgers has informed the Celtic Board of his wish to sign Idah on a permanent deal this summer and has received the backing of Michael Nicholson and his colleagues.

The player himself is also very likely to be pushing for a move to Celtic so while Norwich will maximise the transfer fee, the end result should be a return to Celtic for the Scottish Cup final hero.

And that will please Kyogo, who spoke about Adam Idah after Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final victory secured a double for Celtic in what was a challenging season in so many ways.

“He’s doing a very good job and as a striker, as a colleague, I am very happy for him,” Kyogo said, as reported by yahoo!sport.

“I think everyone wishes him to stay. But at the end of the day that’s his decision. We want him to stay, though.”

On a personal level, the season may not have gone as well as Kyogo hoped, but the forward is delighted that he and his teammates have managed to dig deep and end an often fraught campaign with a league and Scottish Cup double.

“Throughout the 90 minutes I thought everyone fought,” he said. “In the end we got the result and we made everyone smile – so we’re happy about it.”

Kyogo has not been called up to the Japan squad for their forthcoming matches in June so will get an extra few weeks rest. Both Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda are in the national squad which seems to have been having trouble finding the back of the net this year. Curious then that Kyogo is continually overlooked.
