Oh scores his first multi-goal game to highlight Celtic’s win.

Hyeon-gyu Oh scored twice to lead Celtic to a 5-0 victory at home to Aberdeen in the final match of the 38th round of the 2022-2023 Scottish Professional Football Premiership at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland, on Sunday (Oct. 27).

Having clinched the title early on, Celtic started the game with a light touch and opened the scoring in the 27th minute when Japan international striker Kyogo Furuhashi used some tricky footwork to beat a defender.

In the 32nd minute, after Callum McGregor’s shot was saved by the keeper, Furuhashi slotted home with his left foot to give Celtic a 2-0 lead.

Oh the man of the second half with a multi-goal performance

But the second half brought a change of pace. With Furuhashi injured, Celtic rushed to bring on Oh Hyun-gyu from the bench, forcing Celtic to make a series of substitutions as they picked up two more injuries.

Oh was the star of the second half. Celtic made it 3-0 in the 33rd minute when Karl Starfeld scored a header from a corner kick.

Soon after, in the 37th minute, Jota sent in a cross from the left side of the penalty area and Oh, who was charging towards goal, rattled the Aberdeen net with a header. Oh’s positioning was excellent, with no interference from the defense.

Oh struck again in the 45th minute with a right-footed volley after Jota’s free kick hit the post. It was the first time Oh has scored multiple goals in a game since moving to Scotland.

With the 5-0 win, Celtic finished their Premiership schedule with 99 points (32 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses). After clinching the title, the Hoops struggled in their last three games with one draw and two losses, but rewarded their home fans with a goal-fest in the final game.

Oh’s bold move to Europe, and a successful debut

After the game, the Celtic players shared their victory with the home fans, including Oh, who came out in a Korean flag to lift the trophy.

Oh scored six goals in 16 Premiership appearances. That’s a lot of goal-scoring power considering he’s only accumulated about 500 minutes of playing time, mostly as a second-half substitute. 메이저놀이터

After joining Celtic from K League One side Suwon Samseong in January, Oh made a successful debut for the Hoops with his strong physicality and goal-scoring prowess, even against European opposition. Now that he’s settled in, he’s likely to be given more playing time next season.

Meanwhile, Celtic’s title challenge is far from over. Having won the Premiership and League Cup, Celtic will face Inverness C.T. in the Scottish Cup final next month on April 4 as they look to complete the ‘treble’ this season.
