Celtic were humbled at home to Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday evening on a night fans will want to forget quickly.

Celtic looked likely to score in the early stages, Kyogo in full flight was only thwarted by some excellent goalkeeping.

The striker made his surprise return to the starting XI. It was only a week ago Ange revealed the player was likely not goings to play this side of the international break.

The Japanese star was eventually subbed off with the game beyond Celtic at 3-0. The new Celtic bhoy was at the further end of the pitch and walked around the stadium to get to the dugout. He looked so disappointed with the result but still made some young kids’ day by slapping their hands as he walked.

As he got nearer the dugout, the striker started picking up rubbish at trackside with a supporter filming it. We thought nothing of it last night – but we’ve woken up to the clip going viral.

Anything this lad does has Celtic fans flocking to it. Last Thursday, a video at the tunnel of Kyogo wishing his teammates well before the Raith game also got a lot of views.

If he can start banging in the goals again, Kyogo will be a superstar at Celtic.


  1. Kyogo will not be a Superstar at Celtic . He will leave Celtic in 2 years having won nothing and played in repeated humiliations. This does not make you a superstar. McStay played in some bad Celtic teams in the 90s but he won his fair share in the 80s, hence superstar. John Collins was brilliant for us but is not regarded in the same way as McStay because of his lake of trophies and bad teams. Unfortunately Kyogo will be the same. Might be gone next summer as Ange will be. Turnbull and Rogic need a few weeks off starting Sunday. It is about 3 games since Rogic passed the ball to a teammate. Play some of the B team it cannot be any worse than having
    these two toiling. Get beat on Sunday and we will be in the bottom half of the league and with the first cycle of games, we still have to play 3 teams that are actually above us in the league. After 11 games we may be sitting 8th or 9th. Therefore we can surmise that none of our summer signings Ange included are making a blind bit of difference. No matter how you attempt to spin this it is abject failure and heads need to roll.

    • The board dithering over a successor to Lennon and the hapless decision to appoint Lennon has led us to this. Your assessment of young Kygo is completely wrong you appear dour in your outlook and miss the fine attacking football we play with two wingers. Clearly the defence is wrong but then Ange has accepted John Kennedy as a number two not quite a defending guru as wit would appear maybe we should fire him first before the manager? We need defenders clearly big strong and fast the way Ange wants to play

  2. It’s not Kyogo I’m worried about. A solid defence and industrious midfield has to be our base line. When it comes to a blame game it shouldn’t be aimed at Ange. The board are getting away with neglecting their duties. He needs everyone behind him and financial support at the next transfer window. The rebuild may take time and the support will have to show patience.

  3. Because our midfield is so weak defensively we have our playmaker Calmac playing 20/30 yds further back than he should be and acting as his own water carrier. No wonder he travels so much in matches. Also left back position never fully addressed since KT, surely time for Scales to start. Starfelt never a commanding CH, sideways pass specialist, cannot play the ball out and his faffing about gets us into trouble. We are not good at playing out at all as we invite teams onto us because we are too slow and obvious. Vast improvements needed.

  4. We need juranovic back and playing on the right after all that’s what we bought him for. Julienne back taylor back and probably Carter vickers, get the defence consistency. Mid field is a worry we need a bit of dig in there to many sand dancers up front takes care of itself if mr. Koyog can stay fit, however all that has to happen soon or we might just be to far behind for it to matter.
