Daizen Maeda might be out injured at the moment but he’s no less invested in the Celtic team’s fortunes as they head into a crucial Christmas period.
The Japanese winger took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to celebrate his good friend Tomoki Iwata getting a start against Hibs and putting in a good performance.
Maeda branded Iwata‘s performance as ‘super’ on the night.
Celtic breezed past Hibernian 4-1 on the night thanks to two goals from Oh, and on each from O’Riley and Palma,
The bhoys maintained their eight point gap at the top of the league and showed a bit more depth by bringing in players like Iwata and Oh to the starting XI.
Celtic are off to Rugby Park next where they lost in the League Cup earlier in the season. Brendan Rodgers also doesn’t have the best track record taking his team to the artificial surface.
Fingers crossed the bhoys can put in another top performance. Has Iwata done enough to keep his place in the side?
