CELTIC star Kyogo Furuhashi is aiming for the Lisbon Lions’ goal record.

The club’s legendary side scored 111 league goals in 1966/67.

Ange Postecoglou’s side are only four goals away.

And Kyogo reckons they can do it in the remaining two Premiership clashes.

He said: “We need four more goals to reach that record.” Can I still score four points? I don’t know if I can do this!

“But as a team I think it’s achievable in two games.

“I know that this club has a long history and a lot of great successes, from great teams like the Lisbon Lions.”

“Teams like these are the reason the club is where it is today and they are the reason we are all here today.

“You see the pictures on the walls around the stadium and you hear a lot about the great story they wrote.

“I’ll be happy if one day my picture will also be on the wall, but I still have a lot of things to do before then. That has to be my focus.

“It would be nice to match the record, but if we want to enjoy a moment like this we have to do well in training and perform well in games.”

Kyogo increased his own tally of the season to 31 goals when he equalized against St Mirren on Saturday.

He added: “It was nice to score another goal but my goal is always to score goals to win the game.”

“The goal is always to score as many goals as possible and I hope to score more goals in the final games of the season.

“But the most important thing is to win the games.

Hoops manager Postecoglou was unhappy with the performance in the 2-2 draw with the Saints.

And Kyogo added: “It was a difficult game, but finally we managed to equalize.”

“Of course I was disappointed not to have won the match.

“We will work hard in training and try to win our next game.

“We try to set our standards as high as possible and if you can reach that level in every game, that’s very good.

“Of course, that’s not always possible, but you have to make it your goal.”

Celtic have two league games left before next month’s Scottish Cup final against champions Inverness Caley Thistle.

But Kyogo added: “I’m not thinking about the Scottish Cup final yet.

“We have two games left and we want to win those games.

“It will be important to do our best in the final because it’s another big game with a trophy.

“But the most important thing for us is that we focus on those games because until then we want to build momentum.
