Striker Oh Hyeon-gyu (22), who plays for Celtic in Scotland, scored his debut goal in 4 games after joining the club. Oh Hyun-kyu gave credit to the coach, colleagues, and fans.
Celtic beat St Mirren 5-1 in the 2022-23 Scottish Cup Round of 16 held at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland on the 12th (Korean time).
Oh Hyun-kyu stepped on the ground in place of Jota Felipe Jota in the 18th minute of the second half when he was leading 1-0, and scored the goal 17 minutes after starting the game.
“I was able to score thanks to the fans, the manager, all the coaching staff and teammates,” he said on his social media account of his debut goal.
He added, “I will do my best to score as many goals as possible in the future.”
On this day, Oh Hyun-gyu shook the net in the 35th minute of the second half when he was leading 2-0 with Leo Hatate’s penalty kick in the 31st minute of the second half. He calmly pushed Callum McGregor’s shot past the opposing goalkeeper from the goal.
Hyungyu Oh ran to the corner flag and celebrated with his teammates.
Oh Hyun-kyu, who wore a Celtic uniform through the winter transfer window last month, made his local debut on January 30th and has been expanding his position by appearing as a substitute in all four recent team matches.
Local media also raised their thumbs toward Oh Hyun-gyu, who scored his first goal. Scotland’s ‘Glasgow Live’ gave a rating of 7, saying, “(Oh Hyun-kyu) was in the right position to score” and “was able to show a lot with a threatening appearance.”
Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ also said, “Oh Hyun-kyu scored the first goal for Celtic in the 35th minute of the second half,” and “When he scored the team’s third goal, the cheers in the stadium grew.”
On the other hand, with the victory on the day, Celtic made an official eight-game winning streak. After drawing 2-2 with the Rangers on the 2nd of last month, they won all eight games they played. 토토사이트
