CELTIC striker Kyogo Furuhashi should face punishment by Scottish FA should he continues to 'exaggerate' in Scotland.

That's the view of former Premier League whistler Keith Hackett.

Kyogo has been a sensational signing for the Parkhead club, scoring 14 goals in 23 appearances since his summer move from the J-League.

He instantly became a fans' favourite among Celtic fans for his string of standout performances as a result.

However, the Japanese star has come under scrutiny in recent weeks over highlighted instances of the internationalist seemingly going down easily.

The most recent incident occurred during Celtic's home 1-0 win over Hearts last week, with Kyogo falling to the deck next to John Souttar.

Speaking to Football Insider, Hackett reviewed the action - as he claimed players should be handed fines if found guilty for such behaviour.

He said: "Incidents like this tarnish the image of the game.

“Players have a duty of care towards each other. They are footballers, they play with their feet. When a player places his hand on an opponent’s neck or above he is, in effect, he is moving into the area of endangering the safety of his opponent. Even a slap of this nature on the back of the head is totally and utterly acceptable.

“But Kyogo has gone down exaggerating. Both of these players should be informed that their behaviour is unacceptable.

“If I was the Scottish FA, I’d be looking to call both of these players in and fine them.

“Look, I think, generally, the referees have got this under control and I think the Scottish FA need to tighten it up. They need to remind players they are responsible for the image of the game.”
