Ange Postecoglou has confirmed Kyogo Furuhashi has been training in London while in isolation and he could be available for the Tynecastle game on Saturday night.
The Celtic manager made the revelation after Carl Starfelt emerged from isolation on Thursday when he entered Celtic Park and did his photo op.
There was mystery surrounding the Japanese attacker, whether he would be available at all for the start of the SPFL campaign and Ange has certainly not ruled him out when talking to Alison Conroy.
Ange Postecoglou says Kyogo Furuhashi has been training in London and is due to arrive at Celtic “in good condition”. If he doesn’t make tomorrow he should be available for midweek.

Celtic are in dire need of an in section of pace and creativity up front. If Kyogo could make the game against Hearts, it could put the cat among the pigeons.
His isolation finishes tomorrow so he would have no time to link up with his teammates before the game
It’s more likely Ange will hold back and perhaps look to play Kyogo in the Europa League qualifier in the Czech Republic this Thursday.
He’s an exciting signing and we’re looking forward to see what Furuhashi can do!
