I'm trying to prove that I'm ready to take responsibility. In an interview with Japanese outletNumberWeb, he said: When Celtic contacted me last fall, I made an immediate decision. The last time I went abroad for a year and a half, I was just frustrated. I decided to see how much I could do. I strongly hope to make up for it.

Postecoglou previously described it as a "bitter moment," and Ideguchi laughed. I think the results of goals and assists are important, but they are also difficult. I'm not a very aggressive player, so it's not easy. It's a necessary part, so I'd like to aim for it.
