Oh Hyun-kyu scored a goal in an away game against St. Mirren in the 2022-2023 Scottish Premiership round 28 held at St. Mirren Park in Paisley, Scotland on the 5th (local time), contributing to the team’s 7th consecutive victory.
With this, Oh Hyun-kyu, who left K League 1 Suwon Samsung and joined Celtic in January this year, scored his first goal in his 5th appearance in the regular league.
Oh Hyun-gyu, who won a penalty kick, stepped up as a kicker.
Oh Hyun-gyu started from the bench that day, and Celtic was uneasy. Greg Taylor committed a handball foul in the third minute of the first half, and a penalty kick was declared after a video review (VAR). St Mirren took a 1-0 lead thanks to Mark O’Hara’s calm success. 바카라
St Mirren’s Charles Dunn was sent off in the 38th minute of the first half, but he blocked Celtic’s attack with an iron wall and finished the first half 1-0, expecting a surprise.
However, Celtic’s numerical superiority began in earnest in the second half. In the 11th minute of the second half, Jota scored the equalizer, and just 5 minutes later, Alister Johnston scored a come-from-behind goal from a free kick chance, turning the score 2-1 at once.
In the 21st minute of the second half, Celtic replaced Japanese striker Kyogo Furuhashi with Oh Hyeon-kyu, and Riel Abada in the 25th minute and Matt O’Reilly in the 27th minute scored one after another and ran away to 4-1.
Oh Hyun-kyu could not be left out of Celtic’s goal feast. Oh Hyeon-gyu, who was diligently running around for opportunities as he entered late, earned a penalty kick in the 36th minute of the second half when he was caught by Alexandros Gogić and fell over while trying to break through.
Oh Hyeon-gyu, who started as the kicker himself, split the goal with a right-footed shot. The opposing goalkeeper threw himself in the right direction, but the ball flew so fast and accurately that he couldn’t stop it.
Oh Hyun-gyu’s goal was the 250th goal Celtic had scored since Angers Posteglu was appointed manager, so it had a different meaning. In particular, coach Posteglu showed off his extraordinary mercenary skills by scoring goals with three substitutes, including Oh Hyun-kyu, Abada, and O’Reilly.
In the end, Celtic, who scored five goals in the second half, won 5-1 and recorded 76 points (25 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss), securing first place in the Scottish Premiership, where a total of 12 teams compete.
The difference between the 2nd place Rangers (67 points, 21 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses) is a whopping 7 points. St. Mirren (37 points, 10 wins, 7 draws, 11 losses), which was defeated by Celtic that day, remained in 6th place.
Oh Hyun-gyu, who scored his first goal on the Scottish stage against St Mirren in the 2022-2023 Scottish Cup round of 16 last month, is also quickly adapting to the new stage by operating the scorer in the regular league.
The British BBC gave Oh Hyeon-gyu an overall rating of 7.85, and Whoscore.com, a soccer media outlet, gave a 7.2 point rating.
