Japanese scoring sensation Kyogo has the Celtic fans feeling emotional after he sent out a heartfelt, classy message on Twitter.

The social media-savvy striker, who has no issues taking photos with fans in places like Ikea or Costco, regularly goes for the heartstrings with his messages to supporters.

And even out the team, he’s only increased his bond with the fans. He’s been out injured, but he’s still been giving fist-bumps to his teammates, in some excellent footage that emerged from Thursday night.

Fans just love him. They adored him at Vissel Kobe, and that’s only grown in Glasgow. So when he tweeted this, he must’ve known the kind of reaction he’d get:

Honestly, canny handle it.

Certainly, Celtic have missed the sparky Japanese centre-forward. Albian Ajeti has scored 3 goals in 4 in Kyogo’s stead, but there’s so much missing from the front-line without Furuhashi.

It isn’t just goals, either. Although there have been plenty of those. It’s his movement, too; darting runs that take defenders out of the game completely.

Add a fantastic demeanour and likeable personality to the mix, and it’s no wonder Celtic supporters are besotted.

Just a class wee guy. The sooner he’s back, the better.
