Video: Kyogo is the Celtic player these fans outside Ibrox fear most

An interesting video here, with theRangers fans being asked which player from Celtic they would like to see in their team and while Callum McGregor gets one mention the rest all have just one name on their minds – Celtic’s King of Japan, Kyogo Furuhashi.

Plenty has been said about the racists on the supporters bus that apparently operates out of the The Crown Bar in Bellshill, the very same pub that referee John Beaton drinks in, but one point that hasn’t been mentioned is that the racists’ motivation in singing that song also has another ingredient on top of their hatred and that is fear.

Danish international Brian Laudrup was a fine player for the old Rangers, and he caused Celtic plenty of grief during his spell at Ibrox. Then Swedish international Henrik Larsson returned the compliment by inflicting even more pain on the old Ibrox club.

Many might have thought that the days of these type of players gracing Scottish football was well and truly over but Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou had other ideas, showing us what he already knew that Kyogo is a top, top player.

They are terrified of him over at Ibrox, watch this as Kyogo is the name on their lips…

  1. Im sure it was the Westwood bus from east kilbride that were exposed as the bigoted racists that they are although no doubt same songs were probably sung on orher buses and in the stadium itself and notice very little or nothing was said about the alcohol on the bus

  2. Play him through the middle on Sunday and target Goldson. He’ll drag him all over the place.

  3. If he’s shoved out onto the left wing again to accommodate Eddy they’ll fear him that bit less.
