Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu came to the fore for his side during the week against Hibs. The South Korean internationalist bagged a brace in the 4-1 win.
It was a hugely impressive display from the 22-year-old who took his opportunity in the starting lineup. Replacing Kyogo, Oh had a hard act to follow.
He did it with aplomb, though, and he recently spoke about his relationship with the Japanese hitman. He said (Glasgow Times): “I know how much Kyogo has contributed to this club. I feel it’s an honour to play with him and I respect everything he does. I can learn from Kyogo.”
Having a player in the class of Kyogo ahead of him will be only beneficial for Oh, who is continually developing. The treble-winner also claimed that the levels of training are aiding him. He said: “I look up to other players here and they all mention how hard the training is. I am experiencing it now and it helps me improve a lot, physically and mentally.”
It feels as though there is still much more to come from Oh. He remains raw at times, but his ability and potential are clear to see.
