KYOGO has been pictured in training as the Hoops prepare for the visit from Aberdeen on Saturday.
There were fears that the Japanese striker would spend some time on the sidelines after he came off very early in Celtic’s weekend clash. At full-time, he appeared to have a sling on as he took a step back from the post-match celebrations.

Aberdeen will pose a tough challenge on Saturday, but fans were more worried about the striker’s availability for the cup final clash in just over a week’s time.
Celtic travel to Hampden Park to take on their rivals in a bid to retain the League Cup, which was the first trophy that Ange Postecoglou picked up as manager of Celtic.
Kyogo scored a double in the final, securing Celtic’s comeback against Hibs. His two goals were spectacular and epitomized Angeball, and his simple message of ‘we never stop’.
The manager will confirm Kyogo’s availability in Friday’s pre-match press conference.
