Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu looks like he will be the first of many fringe players to depart the club this summer.

Brendan Rodgers has a fattened squad which needs trimming, and the South Korean striker is set for an exit following 18 months in Glasgow.

It has been reported that Oh has agreed on personal terms with Belgian top-tier outfit KRC Genk, with the side in discussions with Celtic over a deal worth £4.2m plus bonuses.

The Scottish champions making just under £2m profit on a striker who scored 12 goals in 47 appearances has to be commended.

It looks like it will only be a matter of time before Oh leaves Celtic, with him even dropping hints over a move on Instagram.

Early this morning, he posted a story of himself training, simply writing ‘Next one…’:

Oh Instagram Hint

It isn’t difficult to suggest what ‘one’ is a metaphor for. Oh may as well have written ‘Next club’, especially after he deleted all of his Celtic posts from his Instagram account.

It is a matter of when not if regarding the attacker’s Parkhead exit. Not rated by manager Brendan Rodgers, Oh’s move is best for all parties.
