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.

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!


  1. For any centre forward to be successful you have to provide him with scoring opportunities and the way Celtic play at the moment sideways and backwards that’s not going to happen.

  2. This playing across our own 18 yd line is a disaster should be stopped until we have the confidence in an estabilished keeper It is pathetiic to watch and puts more pressure on an immature defence.

  3. Spot on Charlie, we seem to spend our playing time in defence. Time to have a plan, that works. I’m sick of watching games where the forwards don’t get enough chances.
    Also, it’s time we started getting on top of the opposition. Ease them off the ball, run with them shoulder to shoulder. This facing up to them and not getting the ball isn’t the way forward.
