‘Thats horrendous’ ‘horrible to watch’ ‘The clearest red you’ll ever see’ Celtic fans react to attack on Kyogo

Celtic fans were left sickened by the brutal attack on Kyogo Furuhashi by Slobodan Rubezic.

As the hoops striker prepared to head the ball his opponent came charging in to connect with the back of Kyogo’s head to send him to the turf with a thud.

It made for grim viewing on Sky Sports, compounded by the decision by Willie Collum that it only merited a booking, a decision backed up by his Lanarkshire based colleague John Beaton on VAR duty.

There is now likely to be a media clamour for the SFA to take retrospective action, Aberdeen’s next match is a fortnight today at home to Philippe Clement’s side.

Kyogo appeared to be knocked out before he fell to the ground, sensing trouble Rubezic also lay down injured to get the sympathy vote from Collum. He had nothing to be concerned about on that count.

Leading 2-0 and without Kyogo the match could have turned against Celtic but they suck to their principles to win over convincing 6-0 winners with three of the goals coming in the 10 minutes of stoppage time.

Celtic will now wait to discover the extent of the injury to the former Vissel Kobe striker who will miss out on international duty this week.

The hoops play Motherwell on November 25 ahead of a frantic spell of matches through December where it would be wise to have two fit and in form strikers to select from.

After a passive first half Aberdeen were much changed after the break with Jack MacKenzie also putting in a serious of challenges that endangered opponents.

With Collum and Beaton refusing to send Rubezic off the park it provide the Aberdeen players with encouragement to do as they pleased without any meaningful consequences.
