The Japanese striker will be in the squad for the game at Ibrox but might have to settle for a place on the bench after Ange’s comments at todays press conference.
“He’s worked hard at training in his rehab, he’s itching, raring to go, just a moment of me picking the right moment for him.” Ange told CelticTV.
Many Celtic fans thought we wouldn’t see Kyogo until later in April but the manager has delivered the biggest of boosts ahead of such an important fixture. Kyogo’s last two goals for Celtic secured the League Cup – if he gets onto the pitch on Sunday he could score an even more important goal.
It’s been all chance for Celtic since January. The last time the striker played – Celtic were second in the table. In the player’s absence, his teammates have rallied and really taken the title fight to our rivals.
Heading into the game on Sunday, we’ll have a highly motivated Kyogo and a player who has had to watch from the sidelines for a long time.
Let him loose and watch him go.
