In particular, Oh Hyun-gyu scored multiple goals in the 13th round against Aberdeen, and then scored his 4th and 5th league goals in 3 games, rising to 7th place in the league scoring list.

Oh Hyun-gyu proved his worth with multiple goals again after 3 games. On this day

Oh Hyun-gyu played as a member of the 4-3-3 attack formation along with Luis Palma and Mikey Johnston

showing active physical fight and lively movement.

Specifically, on this day, Oh Hyun-gyu performed very well

recording 3 effective shots, 1 key pass, 3 successful ball duels, and a pass success rate of 83%.

He especially looked threatening along with Ace Palma

who took charge of developing the attack by seizing several opportunities inside the Hibernian box.

In fact, Sofa Score, a soccer statistics site, gave Oh Hyun-gyu a rating of 8.8 points, second overall, following Palma

who received 9.7 points.

My body felt light from the beginning of the game.

He scored a lucky first goal five minutes into the first half.

In a corner kick situation, Carter-Vickers’ header was deflected off the body of Oh Hyun-gyu

who was competing in front of the goal, and was sucked into the goal.

Celtic ended the first half with a 2-0 lead thanks to Palma’s additional goal in the 36th minute.

In the 6th minute of the second half, Palma’s successful penalty kick made it 3-0, and Oh Hyun-gyu scored a key goal for Celtic. 

In the 10th minute of the second half, Oh Hyun-gyu penetrated from the left side of the penalty box

received a pass from Callum McGregor, overcame the opposition defense, and scored an additional goal with a right-footed shot.

A key goal that put Celtic up 4-0.

Oh Hyun-gyu, who played such a big role, ended the game on this day after being replaced by existing starting striker Kyogo Furuhashi in the 18th minute of the second half.

Afterwards, Celtic allowed one goal, but completed a comfortable 4-1 win.

Celtic manager Brandon Rogers also expressed satisfaction with this performance after the game.

In an interview with the media, Coach Rogers highly evaluated both the process and the results, saying

Oh Hyun-kyu is playing with great confidence.

He works very hard during training and it is working effectively during games.”

Coach Rogers also said, “McGregor’s forward pass was the point.

The pass broke through the defense and went to Oh Hyeon-gyu.

Oh Hyun-gyu used his strength to rush into his goal and showed good finishing ability

he said, and also described the scene of his second goal in detail, giving a favorable review.

In particular, Coach Rogers gave high marks to Oh Hyun-gyu’s hustle play and pressure.

Coach Rogers said, “Oh Hyun-gyu was great. He also praised his play in addition to his goal, saying

Not only was the goal scene good, but the aggressive pressure he put on while running around to the point where his socks came off was great.”

From Coach Rogers’ point of view, he is satisfied with the great performance that Oh Hyun-gyu shows every time he chooses him.

In fact, in this day’s game, Furuhashi, Celtic’s starting striker and the Japan national team’s starting striker

started the game on the bench and was replaced by Oh Hyun-gyu, who stepped onto the pitch.

Of course, Furuhashi’s position at Celtic is solid, as he showed powerful offensive ability, including being the top scorer last season.

Last season, Oh Hyun-gyu mainly played as a substitute or as a backup to Furuhashi only in cup competitions.

Oh Hyun-gyu’s start under coach Rogers this season was even more lonely.

Due to the aftermath of his injury, he made his first appearance as a substitute in the 4th round of the league.

After his replacement, his usage time was also short, around 10 to 20 minutes.

In the end, he only appeared as a substitute in 8 consecutive games starting from the 4th round.

However, after he scored a goal in 11 league games, Oh Hyun-gyu gradually took advantage of his opportunities.

In the 13th round match against Aberdeen, he came on as a substitute in the second half and scored multiple goals

creating the perfect ‘Oh Hyun-gyu Time’.

Although Oh Hyun-gyu did not get another opportunity to start again after that

the frequency and playing time gradually increased.

And as Kyogo fell into a long goal silence with only one goal in eight recent official games

Oh Hyun-gyu also got an opportunity.

As soon as he got the chance to start in the game against Hibernian, he showed not only his sense of scoring

but also the ability to be the target striker that Coach Rogers requires.

In particular, Coach Rogers, who praised Oh Hyun-kyu’s boldness and thirst for goals in seizing opportunities when he scored multiple goals in the match against Aberdeen

expressed satisfaction by praising the overall play in the match against Hibernian. This is an element that raises expectations about future selection.

The Celtic legend was also impressed by Oh Hyun-gyu’s performance.

Furthermore, he argued that the two-top system of Oh Hyun-gyu and Furuhashi should be chosen.

John Hasson, a Welsh club legend and broadcast commentator who played for Celtic, said

I want to see Celtic’s top two play at the same time.

It will be a scene that fans will also want to see,” he said. “Kyogo is a fantastic scorer and player

but it is also necessary to give Kyogo opportunities. 

There will be moments when a strong physical center forward is needed to create such opportunities

he said, emphasizing the need for a two-top system.

There is a reason. It was believed that a two-top system between Oh Hyun-gyu and Furuhashi would be possible.

In fact, Coach Anger Postecoglou, who led the team until last year

used a 4-3-3 formation with Furuhashi as the lone striker and attacking mainly on the flanks with both wing strikers at the center.

Even after moving the team to Tottenham, Coach Postekoglou enjoys using this formation.

However, Coach Rogers has also actively used formations that use two tops, including 3-5-2, in the past.

Therefore, if you choose a formation that uses two tops to support Furuhashi

who is currently out of form, and to diversify attack patterns, Oh Hyun-gyu could be the partner.

Hasson said, “I was very impressed by Oh Hyun-gyu that day.

He showed up on the pitch when Celtic needed him physically, and we saw the strong influence that Hyun-Kyu Oh had on the game,” he said.

That’s why Celtic fans will want to see Hyun-Kyu Oh and Kyogo play as starters together.

He also hoped to be a starter.
