CELTIC star Kyogo Furuhashi has revealed he was left stunned after Brazilian legend Neymar put him in a headlock in their recent friendly.

Furuhashi was playing for Japan in a glamour friendly at the start of the month against the star-studded Brazilians, but they fell to a 1-0 defeat, after PSG star Neymar converted a late penalty.

But the Parkhead favourite admits he was left stunned by the dirty tricks employed by the former Barcelona ace when Furuhashi decided to take it upon himself to mark him at a set-piece.

He said: "Originally, I wasn't supposed to be marking him at a corner, but there was an extra player and so I went to mark him instead.

"I had to get close to him, but I was completely shocked when he put me in a headlock! I couldn't move, I was completely stuck.

"He did it in a way so the referee couldn't see it. I actually laughed about it later.

"Brazil were very, very good. Casemiro in particular was amazing.

"He was ridiculous in fact, in terms of positioning, passing, and his defensive play. It was actually quite crushing to be on the pitch with someone as good as him."
