The third Korean leaguer in Celtic history was born, following Ki Sung-yong and Cha Doo-ri, the ‘Korean Legends’. Celtic stood out in Suwon, their team, and finally embraced Oh Hyun-gyu, who accompanied him as the ’27th member’ during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and added strength.
This season, Celtic was eliminated in the group stage of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), but they put their regrets behind and focus on the league and domestic cup competitions. Currently, Celtic lead the league with 61 points and the Scottish Cup (FA Cup) and Scottish League Cup remain.
The opponent is the ‘Old Firm Derby’ rival Rangers, which is notorious all over the world and boasts a 135-year history. We are chasing second place in the league right now, and we will meet in the League Cup final.
If so, how many Neuville Old Firm Derby will Oh Hyun-gyu play for the rest of the season? Celtic and Rangers face off in the League Cup final on 27 February. If he wins this game, Oh Hyun-gyu can achieve his first European career victory a month after entering Scotland.
The league match will be held in round 31 on April 9th. They will face off once more in the split round that begins after the end of round 33. Therefore, Oh Hyun-kyu will participate in the ‘Old Firm Derby’ three times during his debut season. Oh Hyeon-kyu quickly melts into the team and his teammates, and then aims to play.
