Brendan Rodgers reveals the names of the two (2) Celtic Fc players who performed the most in the match and led them to their win vs St. Johnstone



As the Saints regret the injury to Sprangler, Rodgers was pleased with the performances of Kyogo and Kuhn to say the least.
As Celtic defeated St. Johnstone by a score of 3-1, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers praised the “excellent” Kyogo Furuhashi, who had been recalled to the team. Furuhashi scored and assisted on a goal during the match.

In addition, two goals scored by the Japanese forward were disallowed for offside, which allowed Celtic to reclaim their position at the top of the Premiership. This will remain the case until Rangers play Dundee at Dens Park on Sunday. Despite the fact that Furuhashi has not been able to recreate the prolific form that he displayed under Ange Postecoglou during the previous season, he was reinstated to the team after making three consecutive substitute appearances, which brought his total to sixteen for this season. After beating goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov to Nicolas Kuhn’s cross in the 40th minute, he scored the first goal with a header. He then set up the German winger to score in the first minute of the second half. Additionally, he struck the crossbar, and by all appearances, he appeared to be at his absolute best.

The statement was made by Rodgers, who stated that “Adam (Idah) has been very good since he came in, and that is what Kyogo and every player needs.” They require to have competition. On the other hand, I liked his movement and believed he was intelligent. Precise. The first goal he scored was an extremely courageous act. He makes a run and comes back onside, and while it is quite understandable that other strikers could move their head out of the way in order to allow the goalkeeper to come through, he did not do so, and he ended up scoring the goal. Also, the second one was a fantastic cross for the first one. He was first-rate as well.

In addition to scoring his second goal for Celtic, Kuhn continued to impress after making a successful maiden start at Parkhead against Livingston the previous weekend. During the conversation, Rodgers stated, “I believe you are beginning to see a little bit of why we brought him here.” This man is incredibly swift. The fact that he was having trouble with his teeth and everything else medically made things difficult for him when he first arrived. However, he has demonstrated that he has regained his strength, and he is performing exceptionally well in his training. It is very clear that he delivers an outstanding cross for the first goal, and you can see his pace for the second goal. Our wingers are always the ones we want to get into the box. A great goal was scored by him after he brought himself into the game.

Alistair Johnston was denied a goal by a questionable offside ruling after Connor Smith had pulled one back for Saints. This occurred after Celtic defender Cameron Carter-Vickers had gone out for a rest. Substitute James Forrest added a third goal to the score, and Alistair Johnston was denied a goal by the incident. “I thought from the beginning of the game there was a great feeling in the stadium and from the crowd,” Rodgers said. “I thought it was a great atmosphere.” I felt that the players did a really excellent job of starting the game, and I believed that the entire performance was quite good. When I made all of the adjustments, our pressuring became a little bit more passive, which allowed them to have a little bit more time on the ball than we would have liked. This was the single negative aspect of the situation.

Despite the fact that Saints played to a draw at Celtic Park in August, manager Craig Levein said that his team was unable to put on the complete performance that was required to get another result there. According to Levein, “Our defensive display was in a really good place.” “The loss of the goal early in the second half was a devastating blow, but when we were playing Celtic in the first half, we limited their opportunities to a very small number. Each and every time we got possession of the ball, we simply coughed it up. We appeared to be turning the ball over on a regular basis, which allowed Celtic to launch another onslaught. That was the most aggravating aspect. It took Celtic over half an hour to get their first shot on target when they finally did. By limiting them to the wide areas, we were able to successfully block any shots or crosses that were attempted. On the other hand, if you consistently allow Celtic to have possession of the ball, you are going to be subjected to attack after attack.

Levein suffered a knee injury in the middle of the first half, which resulted in the loss of midfielder Sven Sprangler. “From what I can tell, it appears that Sprangler has released his medial ligament,” he stated. “I still don’t know whether he will be out for a few weeks or a few months.”
