Fresh footage has emerged on Twitter that highlights just how much Kyogo was enjoying yesterday’s post-match celebrations in Dingwall.

Celtic emerged from the Highlands with a vital 2-0 success. It’s a result that puts us within 2 wins of the title with the game also marking Kyogo’s first start since December.

The Japanese international marked the contest with his 17th goal of the season. And unsurprisingly, he was getting right into the celebrations as he made sure to lap things up post-match:

Kyogo was a real menace throughout with his movement causing Ross County problem after problem in the final third.

On another day, the former Vissel Kobe man could easily have had a hat-trick. Kyogo also had a second goal wrongly ruled out for offside as he looked somewhat back to his best.

Ange Postecoglou stated post-match that Kyogo isn’t yet 100% fit however in an extremely worrying sign for rivals [Football Scotland].

Kyogo delighted to be back as Celtic bag vital win against Ross County

It wasn’t just Kyogo’s performance that will have delighted supporters yesterday – so too did his demeanour.

You could barely wipe the smile off his face all afternoon as the Japanese star clearly relished being back in the spotlight once more. He gave off the vibe of a player who seriously enjoyed his big opportunity yesterday.

It’s great to see that kind of attitude, especially at this stage of the season. The last thing we want if we can avoid it is Celtic players crumbling under the pressure or looking stressed out on the pitch. That didn’t look like it was the case yesterday and Kyogo typified that.

Celtic are clearly in a great place heading into next week’s game against Rangers at Parkhead. Victory over our Ibrox rivals will all but secure the league championship. It’s become a box-ticking exercise for the Hoops in recent weeks, and it would take a near devastating collapse at this point for us not to retain our title.

Indeed, even if the worst happened next week, Celtic would still be in an extremely strong position. That’s something they’ve earned with their from in the Premiership stretching back to September.

Of course, Rangers at Parkhead is also about making a statement. Kyogo will be key to that.
