Will Oh Hyun-kyu get a chance to start?

Celtic will play the 2022-23 Scottish Cup Round 5 (Round of 16) against St. Mirren at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 12th.

Celtic are currently aiming for a domestic treble. They are at the top of the league with 23 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (70 points), and have advanced to the finals of the Via Play Cup토토사이트 (League Cup). And the Scottish Cup, which corresponds to the FA Cup, is also continuing the race.

‘Lead Celtic’, which delivers Celtic news ahead of the game, paid attention to Oh Hyun-gyu’s selection. ‘Lead Celtic’ looked at, “It seems that some players who have not been able to play as a starter will appear in the starting lineup for St. Mirrenjeon. One of those players will be Oh Hyun-kyu.”

Continuing, “Oh Hyun-kyu joined through the transfer market in January, and has made 3 substitute appearances. Since he just joined, his playing time was limited. Now he has to have a chance to prove what a great player he can be. That match will be against St Mirren,” he added.

Oh Hyun-kyu’s performance was also covered. “Hyeon-Gyu Oh was impressive against St Johnston just before. He appeared to score his first goal for Celtic, but was blocked for a foul by the opponent. The defender was eventually sent off,” it wrote.

Finally, he wrote, “Kyogo Furuhashi deserves a break as he has been in all of his recent matches. Oh Hyun-kyu can start in his place. The Scottish Cup is considered an ideal opportunity for Oh.”

Oh Hyun-gyu wore a Celtic uniform through the winter transfer market in January. A transfer fee of 2.5 million pounds (about 4 billion won) and an annual salary of 500,000 pounds (about 760 million won) were set.

And he is steadily stepping on the ground, receiving the trust of Celtic coach Angie Postecoglu. He came on as a second half substitute against Dundee United (2-0 win), Livingston (3-0 win) and St Johnstone (4-1 win). In particular, in the match against St. Johnstone, he induced the opponent’s defender to leave with a fantastic turning action right before the end.

The Scottish Cup against St. Mirren is suitable for Oh Hyun-kyu to start. As Furuhashi, the main resource, continues to play as a starter, there are physical difficulties. Also, Saint Mirren is 6th in the league and has a lot of power difference. Oh Hyun-gyu, who showed flashing moves, deserves a chance.
