Earlier in the season we witnessed a great partnership forming between Jota and Kyogo. injuries put a stop to that partnership during the season but just as we enter the business end of the season it seems that the duo are ready to rekindle that perfect partnership.
As we entered the business end of the season after the SPFL split Celtic travelled for a tough game to Dingwall where they were kicked from pillar to post by the home side’s hatchet men but the cream of the crop always rises to the top and on the day it was Jota and his perfect pass into the box saw Kyogo lose his markers and rise high into the air to head the ball home to give Celtic a 1-0 lead.
Jota picked up a man of the match award for his performance, but honorable mentions must go to Tony Ralston and Greg Taylor both full backs put in full shifts again, both players have improved under Ange Postecoglou and let’s hope that form continues when the Rangers come to Celtic Park on Sunday.
The disappointment of the cup semifinal exit at Hampden will be banished if we can wrap up the title and take home the SPFL trophy. Revenge is best served on a Sunday lunchtime. Role on Sunday.
