CELTIC star Kyogo Furuhashi kick-started his pre-season preparations by joining in training with former club Vissel Kobe.

The Parkhead forward linked up with his former side in Japan and donned his old training gear to take part in training.

Ange Postecoglou brought the 27-year-old to Celtic Park from the J-League last summer.

And the creative attacker has already become a fan favourite in Glasgow - however he keeps  strong ties with his homeland.

Posting this morning, former club Vissel Kobe revealed "special guest" Kyogo joined in training with the squad.

And Kyogo looked delighted to reunite with some of his former team-mates including Spain icon Andres Iniesta.

Images shared by the club appeared to show the Celtic star take part in light fitness drills.

A Vissel Kobe tweet read: "Ibuki has a special guest today! Furuhashi participated in the practice!

"@Kyogo_Furuhashi stopped by today to take part in training with his old teammates!"
