Trevor Sinclair has lauded the popular Kyogo Furuhashi, as he proved to be the game-changer once again for Celtic against Rangers.

The 28-year-old ripped the heart out of the Rangers supporters at Ibrox on Sunday, with his wicked and highly clever first-time finish from the edge of the box, which dumbfounded a clueless Jack Butland in between the sticks.

It was a moment of pure magic from Kyogo Furuhashi and yet further proof of why he is the most clinical forward in Scotland, with former England winger Trevor Sinclair stating on Twitter that ‘it’s difficult not to love’ the Celtic star.

Kyogo’s decision to hit the ball early surprised, not only Butland in goal, but probably the Celtic supporters as well – Neil Lennon highlighted three players for praise.

Many thought he was going to take a touch, but instead, that noise of the ball hitting the back of the net, added with a disgruntled and annoyed fanbase was a joy to behold – Ally McCoist hailed two Celtic players.

Nonetheless, Trevor Sinclair, who is a boyhood Celtic fan, shared this brief message about Kyogo on his socials.

‘Difficult not to love Kyogo,” wrote Sinclair. “What a Bhoy.”

Celtic are just warming up under Rodgers

This opening win sparks huge trouble for Rangers because Brendan Rodgers’ side are nowhere near their best, yet the gap at the top is four points.

A number of weeks ago, Celtic were heading towards the international break with more questions than answers.

Well, a positive end to the 2023 summer transfer, and now this win, has lifted the mood and proves that Rodgers is merely getting warm with the Treble-winning side.
