Celtic: Frank McAvennie drops Kyogo Furuhashi update

Celtic: Frank McAvennie drops Kyogo Furuhashi update -Celtic News

Celtic pundit Frank McAvennie has dropped an update on Kyogo Furuhashi prior to the international break, as per Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Return to training

Eagle-eyed Hoops supporters noticed during the week that the 27-year-old was out training by himself at Lennoxtown with a ball at his feet.

Ange Postecoglou has since claimed that Furuhashi, who has been missing due to a hamstring issue, may even turn out against Rangers at the beginning of April.

Celtic ensured that they would remain top of the Premiership heading into the trip to Ibrox with a 4-0 win over Ross County on Saturday, but prior to that match, McAvennie had some good news when it came to Furuhashi.

The Latest: McAvennie’s comments on Kyogo

The Celtic pundit and former Parkhead striker was talking to Football Insider regarding Furuhashi’s return to training.

He labelled it ‘magnificent’ and said that the Japan forward will be back in time to face Rangers after the international break, detailing:

“There are rumours going about, about him coming back for these Rangers games.

“It would be great because we play them three times in a month, it would be magnificent.

“The guys who are in there at the moment will cause problems for Rangers and Kyogo is better than them, no disrespect to the other guys.

“You want to see your best players back, nobody has said anything about this injury for a while.

“To see him back in training is magnificent. I’ve heard from people who know he will be back in the next few weeks, in time for the Rangers games.

“I hope that’s true because we will win them if he plays.”

The Verdict: Huge for Celtic

Furuhashi’s presence back in the squad following the international break would be huge for Celtic, giving them a major boost in the final stretch of the season.

He remains the Hoops’ top scorer despite playing 18 games fewer than Liel Abada in second, so being able to call upon him at Ibrox would be massive, even if it is from the bench.

David Turnbull also returned to action on Saturday after a lengthy layoff, and hopefully the pair will remain fit in the final months of the season.
