New deal for Kyogo is great news in a week of increasing negativity

Celtic this morning announced that our talismanic striker Kyogo has signed an extension to his current contract that keeps him at the club for four more years .

It’s fantastic news in a week we have seen Jota depart and rumours of more offers coming in for our star players.

I wrote just yesterday on The Celtic Star saying that signing Kyogo up on a new deal would be as important as any business we do this summer. It’s brilliant that he’s done just that.

Kyogo is the best player in the country and getting him tied down on a new deal is an absolute brilliant bit of business by the club.

Of course it doesn’t mean anything in todays climate, but by committing his future that bit longer means the Japanese striker is happy at the club, and that bodes well. It also offers us the security of getting a decent fee if or when he does decide to leave. Great news all around in a week of negativity.

John Hartson has already made this point on social media, saying:

“Kyogo signing a new 4 year contract is excelllent news for all concerned at Celtic.. what it also does it put Kyogo at the top of the best paid players at the club and also protects Celtic’s valuation if Kyogo was to be sold.”

“I am very happy to extend my stay for four years at this incredible club. It is an honour to represent Celtic Football Club and our amazing supporters.

“Last season was unbelievable. From the start of the campaign, our aim was to do as well as we could in every competition we played in.

“We worked very hard every day, on and off the pitch, to win silverware and put smiles on our fans’ faces. To win my first Treble, and help secure a world record breaking eighth Treble for the club was a very proud moment for me and I cherish the memories of celebrating this with our fans.

“They have been so supportive of me since I joined Celtic so I will work hard to repay them.

“Next season our objective is the same – to bring success to our Club. I am excited to defend our trophies and the opportunity to represent this huge club in the Champions League. My personal motivation is to score more goals and help my team-mates win matches.

“I am looking forward to getting started and working with Brendan. He is a top-level manager, he knows the club and knows what it takes to win silverware here. I and my team mates are looking forward to working with him,” Kyogo.
