Jurgen Klinsmann is set to visit Celtic and watch his South Korean star Oh Hyeon-gyu next week when the Hoops play Kilmarnock.

The former Spurs and Germany hero called up Oh and used him as a sub for South Korea in a 2-2 draw against Colombia as he won his second cap for his country. He was also capped in their next game against Uruguay.

The former Spurs and Germany icon took charge of the Asian nation in February and immediately called up Oh after being impressed with the start he has made for Ange Postecoglou's side after his £2.5 million move in January.

And the South Korean FA have confirmed the former Germany and Bayern Munich manager will take in Celtic's game in Ayrshire to watch Oh next Sunday.

They stated: "Coach Jurgen Klinsmann will go to Europe on April 14 to meet and watch the players.

"His schedule will see him watch Son Heung-min for Tottenham Hotspur on the 15th, Oh Hyeon-gyu for Celtic on the 16th, Kim Min-jae for Napoli on the 18th, Lee Jae-seong for Mainz on the 22nd and Jung Woo-young for Freiburg on the 23rd.

"This will be to check the exact physical condition of the European Taegeuk Warriors.

"The coach will then return to South Korea to watch K-League games in May."

Klinsmann - who scored in all six major international tournaments he played in while winning 108 caps for his country - is also expected to meet with Ange Postecoglou during his visit to Glasgow.

Last week, the Celtic boss confirmed: " I believe Jurgen Klinsmann is planning a trip and I would be happy to see him. We are a very welcoming club for everyone.”

Meanwhile, Sky has apologised to the Scottish Football Association after pundit Andy Walker claimed that he overheard a VAR official advising a referee of an easy way out of making a contentious decision.

The former Motherwell, Bolton and Celtic player, who works on Premiership football for the broadcaster, was speaking on ‘Get Involved Referee! – The Podcast’ and said he listened to a conversation between the officials and “heard the VAR saying, ‘the easiest way out of this, is if it’s offside’.

“That to me is really poor language. There should be no idea that we get an easy way out”.

Walker did not reveal names or even the game in which the incident took place.

In a statement released to the media, a Sky spokesperson said: “Sky Sports has discussed the matter internally and provided the Scottish FA assurances with regard to permitted use of the VAR audio.

“Andy Walker has also admitted his regret over his comments and how they have been reported by the podcast company who invited him to their show.

“We apologise to our colleagues at the Scottish FA with whom we have a strong relationship, and look forward to continuing to provide exclusive live coverage of the Scottish Premiership.”
