The Kyogo show trends on YouTube as 400k people watch class weekend Celtic footage
The Celtic demolition of Dundee is trending on YouTube today, with close to 400,000 people viewing the official SPFL highlights.
Fans from around the world, including Australia and Japan, are piling onto the video. Nearly 1,000 comments have been left, as the audience share their thoughts on Celtic’s brilliant 6-0 performance inside Paradise.
For comparison’s sake, the opening day Rangers win over Livingston at Ibrox has less than 150,000 views after a week.
Kyogo Furuhashi is likely part of the reason for the huge audience. The Japan international produced a sensational display to net a hat-trick against the Dees.
No doubt plenty of people in his homeland are paying close attention to his progress. He was an emerging superstar at Vissel Kobe before his Celtic move, leading the scoring charts in the J-League and winning caps with his country.
Celtic growth on YouTube is exciting across the board
The video numbers will also be welcomed by new league sponsors Cinch. They are named in the title of the video and have their logos on the footage.
There has been a surging Celtic community on YouTube over the last 18 months. Channels such as 67 Hail Hail, A Celtic State of Mind, Ryan118 and Celtic Fans TV are racking up millions of views. Our channel is closing in on 20,000 subscribers alone and grows every day. It’s an exciting scene and one we’re delighted to be a part of.
As for Kyogo, well, he’s a player in his prime with a lot of charisma and personality. Supporters, not just of a Celtic persuasion, are going to flock to him over the coming weeks and months if he continues his red hot form.
We can’t wait to see what he can achieve at Celtic.
