Celtic Star Kyogo Furuhashi Spotted Cleaning Up After Being Subbed Off

Celtic were beaten by Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League on Thursday night but at least one of their players showed great class with his behaviour.


The Scottish Premiership side were handed their second defeat in two games in the Europa League, making their progress into the next round quite unlikely.

Whilst things didn't go well at all on the pitch, with the team losing 4-0, there was a moment for the fans to celebrate, with Kyogo Furuhashi showing his class.


The Japanese forward was subbed off in the 74th minute, after making his comeback since being unavailable since the last international break.

Instead of slumping onto the bench in annoyance, Kyogo decided to applaud the fans at Celtic Park and then picked up rubbish from the edge of the pitch, as captured by one fan.

It's not the first time Japanese players have been praised for tidying up, with the national team cleaning up after themselves in the changing room during the World Cup in 2018.


Japan were 2-0 up against Belgium in the last 16, and heading for causing the biggest shock of the round, when Roberto Martinez's side turned things around.

Nacer Chadli's 94th minute goal made it 3-2 and knocked Japan out, but the players were praised after for leaving the changing room in as nice a state as they found it.

Less than a year later, the team were at it again, this time after being knocked out of the Asia Cup by Qatar and leaving the changing room tidy before heading home.


It's not just the players who are known to tidy up after themselves either, with the fans also known to clean the stands after matches.

In June 2019, the Japan Women's team beat Scotland in the Women's World Cup group stage and, following the match, fans were seen picking up litter in the stands.

Japan fans aren't the only ones though, with Scotland fans also joining in when it comes to making sure there's no mess after they've left.


At the Euros, the streets of London were looking a little worse for wear after the draw between England and Scotland but a group of Scottish fans cleaned up after the match.
