Sky pundit says Celtic have a 'relentless' player who could have big say v Rangers

Celtic face Rangers at Ibrox this Sunday in the first Glasgow derby of the season.

For the first time in over 600 days, the Hoops and the Gers will lock horns in front of a capacity crowd.

Although Rangers have won five of the last six derbies, Celtic have picked up consecutive 6-0 league victories.

Sky Sports pundit James McFadden thinks Kyogo Furuhashi is likely to have a big say in the game.

The Celtic summer signing has hit the ground running at Parkhead, scoring six goals in his first seven games in green-and-white.

Celtic star is “just relentless” – McFadden

“Usually, it takes players a long time to settle in a new league,” McFadden wrote on Sky Sports.

“But I think it’s his attitude that has helped him hit the ground running.

“He works so hard for the team and his movement is excellent.

“He just has a desire to get across the front of the defender and his movement is incredible.

“He wants to get in behind and wants to break the line of the defence.

“I just like his attitude and his enthusiasm – he is just relentless.

“His desire to get in the box and score goals is ridiculous and his movement is really top level.

“He’s made an instant impact, he’s a hero to the Celtic fans already and you can see why.”
