CELTIC manager Ange Postecoglou remains optimistic about Kyogo’s chances of playing in the upcoming Scottish Cup final, despite the Japanese striker picking up an injury during their emphatic 5-0 victory over Aberdeen.

The striker was through on goal when he collided with the Dons’ keeper, and despite trying to play on, he sat down moments later. With two goals to his name, he was replaced by South Korean Oh, who also bagged himself a brace in the second half.

Ange Postecoglou provided an update on the player’s situation, saying: [Clyde 1]

“It’s too early to tell, but i don’t think its anything serious. I’ll speak to the medical guys and see how it settles down.

He has done a cup final on one leg before mate so unless both legs are out I reckon he has got a chance.”

As Celtic fans eagerly await updates on Kyogo’s injury and his potential involvement in the final, they can take solace in the manager’s positive outlook. But fans will also know that Oh can be called upon, as he looked sharp throughout the second half, and was amongst the goals.

The other worry is Alistair Johnston, with fans eagerly awaiting the latest news on the right-back who made his injury return against Aberdeen.
