Kyogo Furuhashi appears to have been unofficially appointed as the new post-match celebration leader at Celtic going by the scenes of recent weeks.

Kyogo has made a huge impact for the Hoops since returning to action against St Johnstone back in April. The Japanese international has won his starting jersey back and has featured heavily in recent weeks against St Johnstone, Ross County, Rangers, and Hearts respectively.

And it seems as though he’s the new lap of honour dance leader as he’s been conducting the Hoops support in recent weeks. Take a look at the videos below:

The former Vissel Kobe striker missed over 3 months of action after injuring his hamstring back in December. But he’s returned at just the right time to give us the extra spring in the step we needed.

The post-match scenes between the supporters and the players this season have been absolutely vital in building that particular relationship up. And it’s clear how much Kyogo appears to be enjoying them.

Goodness knows how excited he’ll get if we win the league at Tannadice on Wednesday night.

Kyogo Furuhashi increasing his relationship with the Celtic supporters every week

Kyogo’s relationship with the Celtic support has been high ever since he arrived at the club. It’s not just his on-field exploits either. It’s his behaviour with supporters and his class off of it that’s widely been appreciated too.

You can’t help but feel delighted for him when you see scenes of him leading the celebrations after victories. Considering he missed 3 months of post-match joy you can understand his urge to be front and centre these days.

You could say he’s become something of the poster boy of the Celtic rebuild under Ange too. Nothing sums up the way in which the manager has reformed this club more than the signing of Furuhashi. He’s a different kind of player and one that the supporters absolutely adore. The kind of flair we just didn’t have last season.

He’ll be looking to be the hero at Tannadice this week too as he looks to notch the goal that will hopefully secure us the Premiership title. Celtic only need a point in the City of Discovery on Wednesday night, and it looks certain that the Japanese sensation will start.

Regardless of what happens against Dundee United, it’s now at the stage where it’s almost impossible for Celtic to give up the championship due to the heavy goal difference advantage we have over Rangers in addition to our 6-point gap.

And if we manage to make that title win official this week? Those post-match celebrations are going to be the wildest yet.
