Kyogo Furuhashi insists he is "honoured" every time he gets to pull on the Celtic jersey as he opened up on his future at the club.

The Japanese striker has been a revelation since he moved to Glasgow as Ange Postecoglou's first signing at the club.

Kyogo's goals, assists and all-round personality has made him a favourite with Parkhead supporters, but his form is also sure to have grabbed the attention of some of Europe's elite clubs.

The 28-year-old though is fully focussed on all things Celtic.

He said: “I want to enjoy the games. We still have five games left and we want to enjoy it as much as we did in the past seasons.

"While I’ve been here at the club, a lot of players have left and a lot of players have come in. I’m honoured to be able to stay at the club and play here.

"As I said, I want to enjoy this day. I think it’s important not to stick with the idea of winning the titles. We think this is another game in the league. We will prepare and try to win the game.”

Kyogo is on 29 goals for the season, which means he is close to the 50 mark already for Celtic.

"As I always say, everyone is supporting me to get goals," he added. "I just work hard to provide something back for them because they support me all the time.

"Being at this club is an honour already, by scoring the goals I can give something back to the supporters and the club. We always get the win because we are united and work hard for it."

Meanwhile, Matt O’Riley returns to the scene of his fast-track Celtic debut on Sunday hoping to clinch a second successive Premiership title.

The 22-year-old midfielder signed from MK Dons in January 2022 and went straight into Ange Postecoglou’s side for the trip to Hearts where he set up Giorgos Giakoumakis for the visitors’ second goal in the 2-1 win.

With five post-split fixtures remaining, the reigning champions are 13 points clear of Rangers at the top of the table and will retain the title with a win over the Jambos while taking a giant step towards the domestic treble.

Speaking at Toryglen Regional Football Centre where he was publicising a new walking football initiative supporting those affected by Parkinson’s, O’Riley said: “My first game was at Tynecastle. It was a good night.

“It was a few days after I signed so I was thrown straight in which is probably the best way and it is quite a hostile atmosphere as well so it is probably the kind of game that you want to be involved in.

“Two games later I was playing against Rangers as well so it was quite an introduction.

“Nothing is officially done so we will train as we always do.

“We would rather win than draw or lose, naturally. So that will be the aim but saying that, it is definitely a hard place to go.

“It won’t be easy. Our frame of mind has to be right before the game and hopefully we can get the job done.

“It (possible treble) is obviously exciting. One more trophy than last year so that would be great.

“We haven’t done anything yet. We have one trophy, we are in a very good position to do something special but there is still a lot of work to be done.”
