It takes a great Celtic striker to know one.

Kenny Dalglish has been full of praise for Kyogo Furuhashi. The former Scotland international branded the forward as the "bargain of the millennium" after his stunning winner handed the Hoops a 1-0 win over Rangers in the recent derby.

The 28-year-old has scored 57 goals in 88 games for the Scottish champions, while also providing 11 assists.

Dalglish, who bagged 173 goals in 338 games for Celtic himself, insists that the £4.6million shelled out to Vissel Kobe for Kyogo's services in July 2021 has been money well spent.

Writing in his Sunday Post column, he said: "I need to commend the winning goal from Celtic’s Kyogo.

"It was an outstanding strike and just reaffirmed again what a wonderful talent he is. At a transfer fee of around £4m, he is one of the transfer bargains of the millennium.

"Last Sunday showed, once again, that Celtic are the team to beat and will not give up their title lightly.

"They have quality players and a winning mentality. Led by captain Callum McGregor, they know what it takes to be successful."

Meanwhile Celtic will find out the full extent of Liel Abada's injury after he was flown back to Glasgow.

The Israeli winger will miss matches with Romania and Belarus after he sustained a quad injury in training.

Israel national team boss Alon Hazan said of the damage: "He felt a pinch in his muscle."

The Parkhead club and medics were keen on checking out the players' situation for themselves rather than letting him remain with his national team and risk any further damage.

Abada now faces a month on the sidelines so soon after signing a new four-year deal with the champions.

It is a huge blow for Rodgers as Abada will definitely be ruled out of Celtic's opening Champions League group stage fixture away to Feyenoord in the De Kuip Stadium on September 19 and he will be rated as highly doubtful for the first home encounter against Italian Serie A side Lazio on October 4.

Celtic also booted out a £7 million bid from Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon before the end of the transfer window.
