Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu and the rest of his South Korean teammates have been given the green light by Jurgen Klinsmann to spend time with their girlfriends and families during their World Cup qualifying camp this week.

The 22-year-old headed off to Asia in fine form after netting a double in Celtic's 6-0 romp against Aberdeen on Sunday and he also scored a late winner against St Mirren at the start of this month.
South Korea face two huge games this week in World Cup qualifiers at home to minnows Singapore and then away to China at Shenzhen.

But relaxed manager Klinsmann has adopted an unusual policy for the ties, with the former Germany World Cup and Euros winner and manager insisting he won't keep Oh and co locked up in their base.

He said: "I've told them all if they want to visit their girlfriends or their family, fine, no problem. They are all adults.

"As long as they are here for training, meetings and meal times. There is no problem as long as we win the games.

"As a manager, it is important to understand the environment in which the players grew up. Working with young people is interesting.

"But there is a difference between the young people of my era and the young people of today.

"All players must have a sense of ownership and responsibility. Football is a sport played by players themselves - the manager absolutely cannot do it for them.

"The atmosphere in the camp is really good."

Oh is in line to win his seventh cap for his country against Singapore tomorrow.He has yet to score for South Korea.
