Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu has denied he was part of a bizarre table tennis scandal during their disastrous Asian Cup campaign that has rocked South Korean football

Spurs striker and South Korea ­captain, Son Heung-min, injured his finger in an altercation with ­teammates on the eve of his country’s exit from the Asian Cup.

The players quarreled during a team dinner before their 2-0 semi-final defeat by Jordan last week, which extended their 64-year wait for another Asian Cup title after Son demanded they didn't play table tennis and concentrate on tactics instead.

PSG star Lee Kang-in reportedly tussled with Son causing former Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou's star man to injure his finger in the scuffle.

It's caused outrage in South Korea, with the country's football fans already reeling from the poor showing in a tournament that manager Jurgen Klinsmann- who was sacked yesterday - promised they would win.

Now Hoops star Oh has been dragged into the row.

He responded to a post in one of his South Korean media accounts after he was asked 'did you have fun playing table tennis?'

That provoked an unhappy Oh to hit out in reply.

He said: "It's a really low act to come at me and make accusations without knowing anything about what happened."

South Korean FA president Chung Mong-gyu has now apologised for the incident.

He said: "Some of the domestic players camped for 70 days starting on December 26th. The European players joined on January 2nd. Almost 50 men stayed in the camp for more than 40 days.

"It happens in a situation where everyone is sensitive and it often happens in teams. In times like this, discussing the rights and wrongs too much can worsen the wound.

"I am sorry for disappointing many people by failing to meet expectations at this Asian Cup. As I run the football association, I humbly accept criticism."

Oh has yet to break his international scoring duck after being capped 11 times.
