It has emerged that Celtic will be without their South Korean striker Oh for up to six weeks.

CeltsAreHere attended Brendan Rodgers pre-match press conference ahead of the Aberdeen game on Sunday and the manager confirmed to us that Oh had picked up a calf injury and will now undergo treatment for it over the next month.

It leaves Celtic short upfront with Kyogo our only recognised striker. The good thing is Maeda can also play as a forward if need be. Rodgers used Daizen in that position during pre-season and he managed a hat-trick against Yokohama.

The injury to Oh highlights the fragility of the squad up front. If Kyogo was now to sustain an injury it would be very problematic. Not having Oh as an option going into the Champions League campaign and over-exposing Kyogo could also be an issue.

The transfer window is still open and Celtic might be tempted to go back into the market for another striker. It would make sense if they brought in more cover in case Oh’s problem persists throughout the season.
