Celtic beat St Mirren 5-1 on Saturday evening, ensuring their safe passage through to the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.

St Mirren dug in and attempted to get in the faces of the Celtic players. Pushing and pressing the bhoys much further up the pitch than they’re used to.

Despite the large scoreline, St Mirren did make a good account of themselves until a hand ball penalty decision gave Celtic the space they needed.

After the bhoys went two-nil up, they started creating more against the ten men Paisley side. Oh Hyeongyu came on as a second half substitute and got on the scoresheet for his first ever Celtic goal.

The South Korean striker’s goal was probably the biggest cheer of the day inside the stadium. The big man clearly delighted to get off the mark for his new club.

After the game, the Celtic frontman expressed his delight on social media; thanking the fans, the manager and his teammates for helping him score.

Ange is slowly integrating Oh into the side. Since the player made the move to Glasgow, he has made four late substitute appearances. The Australian manager doesn’t want to rush Oh into the side but there could be a start for the player next weekend after Kyogo went off injured during the St Mirren game.
