KYOGO FURUHASHI is ‘ready’ for his Celtic return against St Johnstone on Saturday. The striker has had a full week of training as he prepares to play his first match since boxing day.
Postecoglou has said that the Japanese forward will be involved in the 3 pm kick-off.
“He’s trained all week, I was keen on him getting a full week of training.”
“He’ll be involved tomorrow, 100% he’ll be part of the squad.” [Celtic TV]
It’s a massive boost for Celtic to have the player back. Throughout the first half of the season, he was one of the team’s best players.
He scored many important goals for his side, and he’ll be hoping this continues into the split.
Celtic are in a great position to win the league, six points clear of their rivals. The team will look to complete a treble this season, and they must negotiate their way past Rangers in the Scottish Cup Semi-Final on Easter Sunday.
Celtic have already got the better of their rivals twice this year, and they will be looking to continue their rich vein of form against their rivals.
