Celtic won 2-1 at home to St. Mirren on Wednesday evening. Striker Oh netted the all-important winner for the Hoops late on.

The South Korean centre-forward made a notable impact on the game, along with a few of his fellow substitutes. Yang and Odin Holm were both instrumental after they came off the bench, particularly the latter.

Holm hasn’t endured the best start to life in Glasgow. He was sent off on his Champions League debut against Feyenoord before sustaining an injury that kept him out for a notable few weeks.

He returned midweek, though, and gave a reminder to the support about his undoubted potential. In the middle of the park, the Norwegian youngster was innovative in his passing.

The 20-year-old constantly looked to play the ball forward and in a crucial moment, he kept a cool head to thread a sublime disguised pass through to Oh who bagged the winner.

In the dying embers, too, it was his ball that set up Kyogo. The Japan internationalist should’ve netted when one-on-one with Zach Hemming and given Holm his second assist of the night.

It wasn’t to be, but nothing should be taken away from the former Valerenga man’s impact on the game. He came on and in just 22 minutes, arguably offered more innovation and dynamism than what David Turnbull did when he was on the park.

Holm has vast potential and is hungry to gain more minutes. His antics on Wednesday night mean he deserves to get the nod this weekend at Ross County.

Brendan Rodgers has a decision to make between Holm, Turnbull, and Paulo Bernardo however. For the Parkhead boss, though, it is an ideal dilemma to have amid Reo Hatate’s lengthy injury.
