Celtic could be without star man Kyogo Furuhashi for their Old Firm derby game against Rangers at the weekend, after the Japanese international suffered yet another shoulder injury – his third in the current season.
Speaking to the Daily Record, Postecoglou said: “He hurt his shoulder a little bit. Hopefully, it’s not too bad. Obviously, he’s had a few issues with it. We will just see and speak to the physios.”
The 30-year-old re-aggravated his recurring injury when the Celts took on Hearts at the weekend. As Furuhashi scored the opening goal for Celtic, he was brought off just three minutes later for Oh Hyeon-gyu (who would go on to score Celtic’s second goal of the afternoon).
The victory over Hearts handed Celtic their second successive Scottish Premiership title, but the fitness of the superstar striker will have Celts fans worried nonetheless.
Furuhashi has been Celtic’s top performer this season – the Hoops have had many great showings from players in their squad in the current campaign, but none have shone quite as brightly as the 16-cap Japanese superstar.
Furuhashi will be assessed ahead of the Bhoys’ match against the Gers – as of right now, his availability for that game remains unclear.
