Celtic rounded off their title winning season with an impressive, dominant display, blowing the opposition away 6-0 at Celtic Park.

The second half saw Jota and Giorgos Giakoumakis add their names to the scoresheet as the latter bagged a brace as the Hoops paraded their Scottish Premiership title win in fashion in the curtain closing clash.

Stylian Petrov was in awe of the performance from Furuhashi, having the following to say about the Japanese forward on Sky Sports: “Kyogo knows where the goal is and he has been outstanding all season. Even the first goal, he knows where the goalkeeper and the space is. His timing is perfect.”

Kyogo managed to bag himself a brace in the game despite being subbed off in the 62nd minute, but didn’t have the best of stats overall with just 18 touches and a passing accuracy of 77% (as per SofaScore).

The clash with Motherwell saw Furuhashi take his tally for the season to 20 goals, topping off a wonderful debut campaign in Scotland which saw him secure the league and cup double as well as rack up impressive numbers himself.
