Celtic are back in action tomorrow with a Premiership clash against Ross County after securing their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup with a 3-0 victory over Dundee United in midweek.
With 30 league games played, the Hoops have won 23, drawn four and lost three, scoring more goals than anyone else in the division, with 65 put away and 18 conceded, making them the top scorers in the league and also holders of the best defensive record.
Looking ahead to the clash on Saturday, it seems as though Ange Postecoglou’s side have been handed a major Lennoxtown boost which would surely have many Bhoys fans jumping for joy.
According to a recent report from the Daily Record, Celtic striker Kyogo Furuhashi was spotted with a ball at his feet in the background of a recent behind-the-scenes training video as rest of his team-mates prepared for this weekend’s game.
Since arriving at Parkhead last summer from Japanese club Vissel Kobe, the attacker has been a revelation for the Hoops, racking up 16 goals and five assists in just 26 appearances across all competitions.
Having been out of action since December with a hamstring injury, it’s safe to suggest that many Celtic fans would be delighted to see the Japanese star back on the training pitch once again and presumably getting closer to making a full recovery, based on what he has already delivered for the Hoops in an attacking sense.
Even though Postecoglou’s side have only failed to score in two of the league games that Furuhashi has missed since December, the Celtic manager will still be pleased to have the 27-year-old back in the squad whenever he’s ready.
Whether the striker will be fit enough to play a part against Ross County is yet to be seen, but if he can get back to full fitness in the coming days and then resume scoring goals for fun as he was doing throughout the first half of the campaign, he would surely give his team a big boost in their quest to secure the league title.
