HUMBLE Celtic matchwinner Kyogo heaped praise on his teammates after scoring yet another brace in a League Cup Final to secure a famous win over Rangers at Hampden.

The red-hot forward struck the opening goal just before the interval and added a second 10 minutes after the break to put his side in a commanding position, becoming the first Celtic player to score back-to-back doubles in League Cup Finals since Billy McPhail in the mid-1950s.

But the history maker was more interested in sharing the credit for his side’s win with the rest of the squad than hogging the limelight, saying his goalscoring feats are only possible because of Celtic’s stellar supporting cast.

“I am just happy and humble that I was able to score two goals in this final and we were able to win the cup once more,” Kyogo said.

“But I have to say it was because of the effort of the entire team and fans that we were able to win this cup.

“I am very happy right now. I want to thank all my team-mates for the support. They are always giving me good passes, always setting me up to score the goals. I am happy that I can repay them by scoring.

“I think I still have a lot of improving to do to become a better player, and contribute to the team, which is the most important thing to me.

“I just want to smile at the end of the season with the rest of the team.”

Kyogo thought he should have been on the scoresheet before he eventually converted Greg Taylor’s cross, after Daizen Maeda had swung at the ball and missed.

“I thought Daizen was going to score but then the ball came to me…so I thought it was my duty to score!” he said.

“I’m a striker, it’s my duty to score as many goals as possible and take advantage of as many chances as I can.

"I had chances before I scored which I missed, so I was happy to go on and score two goals in this game.”
