Reporter Lee Hyung-joo = Oh Hyun-gyu (21) is quickly melting into the team. 

Celtic FC won 4-1 in the 2022/23 Scottish Premier League (SPL) round 25 match against St Johnstone held at Macdermid Park in Perth, Scotland on the 5th (Korean time). Celtic have won five league games in a row while St Johnstone have failed to win a second league match in a row.

On the 25th, striker Oh Hyun-kyu confirmed his move to Scotland’s prestigious Celtic. Fans are expecting a lot in terms of being a European striker who joined a prestigious Scottish team. 

Oh Hyun-kyu’s transfer to Celtic was carried out while forward Giorgos Yakumakis (28), who had previously won the top scorer in the Scottish Premier League, promoted the transfer. Yakumakis was a backup striker who supported Kyogo Furuhashi (28), a built-in starter in Celtic’s forefront. In other words, Oh Hyun-kyu entered the team as the second striker.

In addition, there is another Japanese striker, Maeda Daizen (25). Even the wing forward is used in all weathers, but it is also possible to play in the front line. For this reason, it is expected that Celtic will slowly use Oh Hyun-kyu as the next striker and develop it. Because of this, it seems that this season, unless there is a big variable, it will be used as a replacement rather than a starter, and the same was true of St. Johnstone.  토토사이트

However, Oh Hyun-kyu showed his presence in a short time against St. Johnstone. Oh Hyun-gyu was put in at the 34th minute of the second half of the day and played the field for 17 minutes until extra time. 

However, in the 46th minute of the second half, with a free kick, the opponent’s defender, Andrew Kosidin, was sent off with his characteristic recklessness. It was an achievement made with one touch in front of the opponent’s box. The free kick he scored led to David Turnbull’s free kick, and Oh Hyun-kyu contributed to the team’s goal. 

As mentioned earlier, Oh Hyun-gyu is in a situation where he has to make an impact in a small opportunity due to the situation. But, as he showed in St. Johnstone, he shows it so well. This is why the future is more promising.
