'I think': Chris Sutton sends message to Ange Postecoglou to help him solve Celtic 'dilemma'

Chris Sutton has taken to Twitter to send Ange Postecoglou a message, as he attempts to help the Australian solve a “dilemma” at Celtic involving two players.

What’s the story?

Well, the Bhoys take on Rangers tomorrow in a significant top-of-the-table clash at Celtic Park, and Postecoglou has a nice headache.

The 56-year-old must decide who starts up front between Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgios Giakoumakis, in what is a very difficult decision given the quality of both forwards.

Sutton believes the Greece international should start against the Gers, although he also sees no way in which Kyogo can be left out, as the Japan international is the “best striker at Celtic”.

You can see what the 49-year-old wrote on Twitter in full below.

Sutton is probably glad he doesn’t have to make the decision, as it seems he’s torn between Kyogo and Giakoumakis.

So far this season, Giakoumakis has scored 13 goals in 25 games, and also has one assist to his name.

In Kyogo’s case, the 27-year-old has scored 17 goals in 29 appearances, while also providing five assists.

Celtic must start Kyogo against Rangers

Aside from the fact he has more goal involvements than Giakoumakis, we believe Postecoglou has to start Kyogo when Giovanni van Bronckhorst brings his side to Parkhead tomorrow.

As Sutton said, the Japanese forward is the best striker at Celtic, and in a game like this, you simply have to use the best options available.

If Kyogo is benched, and Rangers then go on to close the gap to just three points, then there will be plenty of questions asked by the Celtic supporters, to say the least.

Whatever happens, the Hoops now have some fantastic depth in attack, and it’s better to have this type of problem than be stuck with a lack of options up top.
