Pundit Pat Nevin insists Celtic striker Kyogo Furuhashi is a "genius" after his strike against Rangers.

The Scottish champions ran out 2-1 winners against the Ibrox side thanks to goals from Paulo Bernardo and the Japan international.

Kyogo has 10 goals and three assists across 28 appearances so far this season and Nevin is a big admirer of the forward.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: "To be honest, Kyogo didn’t do much on the ball today. He usually makes all the runs.

"But he just wasn’t getting involved. But when the ball fell to him. That was the crucial moment.

"About 20 yards out. Just drops his shoulder, and goes to his left, most expect him to go to his right, but he doesn’t.

"And he has curled that ball, with power, right into the top corner. It is unstoppable. It’s a beautiful goal.

“He is so loved around here. Deserves to win any game and eventually it does win the game. I suppose that is the thing, quality strikers make the difference. 

“Furuhashi last season, a lot of the times, he was the difference between Celtic and everyone else. Great help behind.

"But, once again, he has done it against Rangers. He loves doing it in these situations. Even if he had a quiet game, that one moment of genius was worth coming along for.”
