James McFadden has been waxing lyrical about Celtic’s star striker, Kyogo Furuhashi. The little Japanese forward has been in blistering form this season in front of goal, and the ex-Motherwell and Scotland international was speaking about the quality that the man from Japan possesses and why he and the Hoops are ‘a match made in heaven’.
He was talking on BBC Sportscene’s highlights of the Scottish Premiership along with host, Steven Thompson and fellow pundit, Leanne Crichton. The trio enthused about the current Celtic goal-machine and couldn’t help but admire his all-round play and what he brings to this Ange Postecoglou side.
The former Everton striker also works as a pundit for Sky Sports Scotland and can be heard regularly singing the praises of Ange Postecoglou and his current Celtic squad – particularly Furuhashi more often than not. This is usually to the pain and frustration of Sky’s lower-level, resident pundit, Kris Boyd, who would no doubt rather eat broken glass than praise the Bhoys every weekend.
Nevertheless, it’s undeniable the solid gold quality that Kyogo has in his locker, having won two League Cup finals for the club now practically on his own. McFadden acknowledged the attackers insatiable appetite to find space even against the most packed of opposition defences, whilst declaring that our number 8 and the Celtic supporters are experiencing quite the love-in at present.
He’s not far wrong!
