Celtic: Kyogo Furuhashi shares positive injury update

Celtic: Kyogo Furuhashi shares positive injury update -Celtic

Celtic forward Kyogo Furuhashi has provided a positive injury update while away with Japan, The Scottish Sun report.

The Lowdown: Furuhashi injury

The 26-year-old, who cost £4.86m in the summer, returned from the previous international break last month with a knee injury.

He missed five games as a result but returned for two games under Ange Postecoglou before jetting off for Japan duty once again.

Furuhashi wasn’t initially selected for Japan, however, his Hoops return meant his country made a U-turn and selected him for two World Cup qualifiers.

The Latest: Injury comments

The Hoops forward was talking to the media, relayed by The Scottish Sun, prior to Japan’s game against Saudi Arabia.

He revealed ‘there is no problem at all now with my knee’ – a positive 10-word update that should delight Postecoglou and Celtic supporters.

Furuhashi came on as a substitute on the hour mark in a 1-0 defeat to Saudi Arabia and appeared to come through without any problems.

The Verdict: Good news

The last thing Celtic would want is for Furuhashi to be playing for Japan not fully fit, but he’s admitted that the knee issue is no longer a problem, hailing the Hoops’ medical staff in the process.

He’ll hopefully return to Parkhead following the game against Australia in good health, which will then allow him to kick on and add to his eight Celtic goals in 11 games.
