During 2022, he scored a total of 14 goals and will be looking forward to getting started alongside his new. Hoops teammates.
This is likely seen as the next big step in his career as he has taken the step to move to European football and Celtic are a great club to do that with. Oh has already picked up his first international cap but shall be hoping to become a regular in the international side much like other Hoops recruits who have been given that chance after joining the club.
He has been in Glasgow the past few days as he completed his medical and now cannot wait to pull on the famous green and white hoops for the first time and experience the atmosphere at Celtic Park in front of the home support.
“I’m happy to be playing at one of the top clubs and I’m delighted that my dream has come true,” said Oh speaking exclusively to Celtic TV.
“I feel like I’m on a movie set and I’m really excited to be in the city and I’m looking forward to the upcoming days.
“This is the moment I have dreamed of and I’m really excited to perform in front of the fans at the stadium.”
The young forward fits the profile of an Ange Postecoglou player as he can also play on the wing which again gives the side great flexibility under the manager.
Before getting the chance to make his debut, he has given Hoops fans an insight into what they can expect from him and is familiar from two names of the past from his homeland that have played at the club.
“I’m a very aggressive player who also likes the physical side and I like to score lots of goals.
“One of my aims is to score a lot of goals and I also have ambitions of winning the league championship.
“Ki Sung-Yeung and Cha Du-Ri are two of the players I respect the most. I have seen them playing for Celtic and I’m now happy to have the Celtic badge on my chest and to be working with the team on its goals.”
