Oh Hyun-gyu also scored a goal in the Scottish Premiership.
Celtic defeated St Mirren 5-1 in the 28th round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2022-23 season held at St Mirren Park in Paisley, Scotland on the 5th at 9:00 pm (Korean time). With this, the leader Celtic maintained a 9-point gap with Rangers (67 points) with 25 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (76 points).
Celtic was dragged away by giving away a penalty kick (PK) to Mark O’Hara in the 6th minute of the first half. However, in the 38th minute of the first half, St Mirren’s Charles Dunn was sent off, and the mood shifted to Celtic.
In the second half, Celtic’s goal bombardment continued. Jota scored in the 11th minute of the second half and Alistair Johnston scored in the 15th minute of the second half. And in the 21st minute of the second half, Kyogo Furuhashi and Leo Hatate were removed, and Hyungyu Oh and Matt O’Reilly pulled the reins.
The scoring continued. Riel Abada in the 25th minute of the second half and O’Reilly in the 27th minute of the second half widened the gap to 3 points. And the long-awaited Oh Hyun-kyu’s goal was born. In the 35th minute of the second half, Oh Hyeon-gyu tripped over Alex Gogichi at the gate. The referee declared a PK after VAR. Oh Hyun-kyu stepped up as the kicker and shook the net with a kick to the bottom right. It was his league debut goal.
The match ended with Celtic winning 5-1. Celtic has been on a seven-game winning streak and has firmly maintained its lead. 예스벳 토토
After the match, Scottish ‘Celtic Star’ said, “Is there anyone who wasn’t laughing when Oh Hyun-kyu got a PK and started as a kicker?
In addition, the British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ wrote, “Oh Hyun-kyu scored a PK goal. It was his first league goal and the 250th goal scored under Engie Posteglu coaching system.”
Oh Hyun-kyu joined Celtic through the winter transfer market and played 7 official games until the match against St. Mirren. Coincidentally, both of his goals came against St Mirren. He became a killer by scoring in the round of 16 of the Scottish Cup and the 28th round of the league.
On the other hand, coach Postecoglu said, “The players who came in were good and they were really good. Opportunities will come,” he said, praising the Jokers.
