Kyogo can become a Celtic legend if he commits to a new deal

All the transfer speculation at the moment is pretty off-putting to be honest, who is going who is coming in. The outgoings are more of a concern with Jota having all but left the building with a lucrative move to the Gulf state pending and Reo Hatate is rumoured to be next!

Losing Jota is a massive blow, losing Reo would be just as big a setback to our squad. One man who has been linked with a move, but nothing concrete thankfully, is Kyogo. He is one player we need to keep. He will be a vital player for Brendan Rodgers just as he was for Ange Postecoglou.

The Japanese striker is undoubtedly the best striker in the country, it’s not even close. He’s a superb player and one we don’t want to lose.

Kyogo himself said just recently that he wasn’t thinking of his future elsewhere, he is just looking ahead with Celtic and that is music to the ears. Things can of course change quickly, but it gives us some optimism on a player’s future in a time when it seems we are being raided by anyone with a bigger wallet than us.

With talk of big signings coming in, the best signing Brendan could make is getting a new deal thrashed out for Kyogo. He only has two years remaining on his deal, give him what he’s worth and sign him up long term. It would be a huge shot in the arm for both the club and the supporters.

Staying for a few more years could guarantee Kyogo legendary status at Celtic. He undoubtedly has the ability. That along with his added knowledge and experience of our football gives him the potential to get better, and that’s a scary thought for defences up and down the country as presently he’s unplayable.

Fingers crossed Kyogo extends his stay at the club as he has the ability to be considered a legend when it’s time to call it a day on his Celtic career. Fingers crossed he commits long term to the club.
