Agbonlahor: Jota and 'amazing' Celtic teammate tipped to help beat Rangers to title as footage emerges

Jota and Kyogo Furuhashi have struck up an instant understanding and it is “good news for Celtic”, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker insisted it is “amazing” as a forward when you strike up a partnership.

As relayed by the Europa League Twitter account, Jota and Kyogo have 28 goal contributions between them across all competitions this season.

The pair both scored a brace in the Hoops’ 4-2 away win over Dundee at the weekend, despite neither completing the 90 minutes.

It was Celtic’s eighth game across all competitions without defeat as they remain four points behind Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

Asked what it is like when you strike up an instant partnership, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Oh, it’s amazing.

“When you do that, it stays with you for the rest of the time you play together. You know where each other make runs, you always feed offer each other.

“I had it with Ashley Young and John Carew at Aston Villa.

“That’s good news for Celtic. There’s no reason why Celtic can’t kick on this season and win the title.

“It’s a very open league at the moment and they can rely on those two to get the results.”

Kyogo moved to Celtic from Japanese club Vissel Kobe for a £4.6million fee over the summer.

Jota, 22, signed from Benfica on a season-long loan but the Hoops have an option to make the deal permanent for a fee just over £6million.
