'We need to use Kyogo more' - O'Riley

Matt O'Riley says that Celtic have to play more to Kyogo's strengths after the Japanese striker scored his ninth goal of the season in the 6-0 thrashing of Aberdeen.

O'Riley praised Kyogo's clever movement, and believes their respective styles of play are well suited.

“Me and him have a really good relationship on the pitch and I think probably 70 percent of the assists I have for Celtic have been for him, and that shows how good he is to play with, and how easy is to play with him," the Danish midielder said.

“His movement’s top class. I actually think we need to use his runs a little bit more because his movement’s so good.

“He deserves the ball to be given to him because he works hard to create the space for himself. We need to keep utilising him because he’s our best goalscorer and that would be helpful going forwards.”

O’Riley believes that the Aberdeen result was a "perfect" response to their 6-0 Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid, and added that such a dominant win had been coming.

“I think a result like that was pending in the league, to be honest," he added.

“We’ve put in enough good performances and it was time – with the utmost respect – that we gave someone a real doing.

“There were a lot of chances created and it could’ve been more. It was needed.

“We were on it right from the start with our runs in behind. We let them know they were going to be in for a game right from the start and we maintained that level throughout."
