Celtic: Journalist drops Kyogo Furuhashi concern

Celtic: Journalist drops Kyogo Furuhashi concern -Celtic News

Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes it’s a ‘massive blow’ not knowing when Celtic forward Kyogo Furuhashi will return from injury, GiveMeSport report.

The Lowdown: Furuhashi’s absence

The 27-year-old was enjoying an unbelievable first season at Parkhead, contributing to 21 goals in just 27 appearances in green and white. However, he hasn’t been seen since the end of December due to a hamstring problem.

Ange Postecoglou’s side have managed to cope without their big summer signing, though, and are currently three points clear of Rangers.

The Hoops boss admitted recently that Furuhashi is nowhere near a return to action, with a crucial Glasgow Derby just over four weeks away.

The Latest: O’Rourke’s comments

O’Rourke was talking to GiveMeSport regarding Furuhashi’s absence. This is what he had to say

“It’s a massive blow for Celtic, to not even have a timeline for when he might be able to return is a real concern for Celtic.”

The Verdict: Return needed

Postecoglou has relied on Giorgos Giakoumakis and January signing Daizen Maeda with Furuhashi out.

Giakoumakis has scored six times in 2022 and Maeda four, however, the Hoops have had their struggles in front of goal in recent weeks.

Centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers and captain Callum McGregor are the only players to have scored in the club’s last 270 minutes of action, netting in a 2-0 win over St Mirren on Wednesday after a 0-0 draw with Hibernian and a 2-0 defeat to Bodo/Glimt, so the sooner they have Furuhashi back, the better.

It may well be touch and go for the trip to Ibrox next month, so the Hoops may need to navigate three more fixtures in all competitions without their star forward.
