Oh Hyeon-gyu will be feeling pretty good about himself after last night’s game.

The young striker has played a bit-part role for Celtic this season, playing back-up to Kyogo Furuhashi in the striking position, with the South Korea international struggling to get game-time in the process.

However, he made all of the difference, as Celtic won a difficult game at home against St Mirren 2-1 thanks to his late winner. Receiving the ball from fellow substitute Odin Thiago Holm, the attacker took a touch to control the ball the fired it into the roof of the net, which caused Celtic Park to erupt in euphoria.

Brendan Rodgers was quick to sing Oh’s praises following the game, as he gave an insight into how the striker takes care of himself, despite his admittedly limited game-time. He said: “It was a great finish.

“Nice little combination with Kyogo (Furuhashi) and Odin (Thiago Holm) can shoot if he’s selfish. But he plays a lovely pass in, and the big guy takes his touch and it’s a wonderful finish. I’m really pleased for him. For the guys who aren’t playing so much, you always have to recognise and acknowledge their efforts, which I do with them.

“He looks after his body, his diet, everything is superb. He’s so professional, he looks at his training and he knows when asked upon, he can come in and make an impact. And what an impact. It’s always difficult for the guys who are playing behind. But all they can do is maintain a strong mentality.

“That sort of second striker playing behind a top striker… it’s a tough ask but everything about him is very good…apart from taking corners!”

Oh will be hoping to get more of a chance – especially from the start – as Celtic enter into a very busy period of fixtures. He may even get his wish straight away, as the club travel to Dingwall to face Ross County on Saturday lunchtime. With big games coming up both domestically and in the Champions League, Rodgers may rest Kyogo in favour of the star of the moment in Oh.
