Oh Hyun-gyu talks about lifting his second trophy with Celtic.
Celtic defeated Aberdeen 5-0 in the 38th round of the 2022-23 Scottish Premiership on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland. With the win, the Scottish champions finish the league with 99 points.
Having already clinched the league title with a win over Rangers, Celtic ran away with their final home game of the season. Kyogo Furuhashi opened the scoring early with goals in the 27th and 32nd minutes of the first half. Injuries to Furuhashi and Riel Abada at the start of the second half forced James Forrest and Oh Hyun-Gyu to come on.
Oh made a big impact as a substitute. He threatened Aberdeen with a sharp header in the 13th minute of the second half. After taking the lead through Karl Staafeldt’s goal in the 33rd minute, Celtic responded with a multi-goal performance from Oh. Oh rattled the net in the 37th minute, finishing off a cross from Jota with a header.
He followed that up with a goal in the 45th minute. He slotted home a second ball from a direct free kick to complete his hat-trick. Celtic closed out their final home game with a 5-0 victory, led by Oh’s multi-goal performance. The 5-0 victory made the celebration even more exciting. According to soccer stats site Hooscore.com, Oh has a rating of 8.12. That’s the third-highest rating in Celtic, behind Starfeld and Matt O’Reilly.
It’s already his sixth league goal. He arrived in the winter and despite playing less time due to Furuhashi’s absence, he has made his presence felt by scoring consistently. Scottish ’67hailhail’ wrote: “Oh Hyun-gyu grabbed the headlines in the game where Celtic won the league title. The future was in sight. He capped off a great day with a great final and gave the Celtic home fans hope that he could be a big part of their future.”
“He scored seven goals (official record) in just 561 minutes of play, which is one goal every 80 minutes,” he continued, highlighting Oh’s efficiency. “This bodes well for his first full season next season. I think he’s going to have a great second year next season. Coach Enze Postecoglou should give him more chances in the 2023-24 season. It’s really positive and he’s improved a lot.”메이저사이트
