The Japan international, who can play as a forward or as a winger, found the back of the net first in the 52nd minute.

The 26-year-old scored the second following a brilliant free kick from Tom Rogic.

Wednesday midfielder Bannan was following the match, and he was hugely impressed by Kyogo.

Bannan, who has played 27 times for Scotland, is a Celtic fan, as he told Herald Scotland back in March 2009.

Big player for Celtic
