Celtic star Kyogo is set to make an emotional return to his former club Vissel Kobe this summer.

The Japanese forward will make a guest appearance when his old side takes on Kawasaki Frontale later this month.

The J-League side have announced that the former fans' favourite, 29, will be at their domestic clash against Frontale on Sunday, June 16.

Kyogo will make a special appearance on the pitch at half-time, with the mic likely to be handed to him to speak publicly to supporters.

However, he will also be on co-commentary duty working for broadcasters DAZN.

The Hoops forward will be paid to offer his insights on the game against teammate Reo Hatate's former club.

Kyogo joined the Scottish Premiership champions from Vissel Kobe for £4.5m in 2021. He was one of Ange Postecoglou's first signings that summer.

He scored 20 goals in his first season, and he quickly became a hero among the Celtic faithful, firing them back to the title.

His second season was his best to date in Scotland, where he finished Player of the Year after scoring 34 times.

While the 2023/24 campaign didn't see vintage performances from Kyogo, he still managed to get on the scoresheet on 19 occasions and finished as the club's top scorer once again.

Meanwhile, David de Gea has been tipped to make a shock move to Celtic.

Hoops hero Peter Grant has urged his former club to at least ask the question of the Spanish goalkeeper who has been without a team for the last 12 months.

De Gea, 33, left Old Trafford last summer and has been a free agent ever since.

He's been keeping sharp by training with a non-league side in England near where he stays, but he hasn't retired, and clearly still fancies himself to play for another few years.
