Video: Blow for Celtic as Kyogo forced off with hamstring injury

Celtic have suffered yet another injury blow with Kyogo Furuhashi being forced off early in the first half against St Johnstone. The Japanese star returned to the starting XI a week after his heroics at Hampden but he was forced to leave the pitch after failing to connect to a floated ball from James McCarthy.

McCarthy’s ball appeared to be inch-perfect but Kyogo pulled up and immediately, it looked as if he was in trouble. The 26-year-old held his right hamstring and was swiftly replaced by Joey Dawson, who has been impressing for the B Team.

Dawson signed from Scunthorpe in the summer and makes his debut after Celtic’s attackers have been decimated with injuries.
