Oh Hyun-gyu (22) lifted the championship trophy a month after advancing to Europe.
Celtic won 2-1 in the 2022-23 Scottish League Cup final against Rangers at Hampden Park in Glasgow, England on the 26th (Korean time).
With this, Celtic succeeded in winning the tournament for the second consecutive time. This is their 21st League Cup title.
Celtic scored the opening goal in the 44th minute and succeeded in overpowering the team. A cross from the left was finished by Japanese striker Kyogo Furuhashi with a goal in front of the goal.
After finishing the first half with a 1-0 lead, Celtic scored an extra goal in the 11th minute of the second half to make it 2-0. Again, the scorer was Furuhashi. Furuhashi, who was in front of the goal, overcame a struggle with a short cross from the left and connected it with a sliding shot, shaking the Rangers’ net.
The Rangers also counterattacked. Alfredo Morelos scored a comeback goal in the 19th minute of the second half, making the score 2-1.
Oh Hyun-kyu started the game from the bench that day and was substituted in place of Furuhashi in the 31st minute of the second half. In the 34th minute of the second half, he showed enthusiasm by receiving a warning.
In the end, the game ended with Celtic winning 2-1.
Oh Hyun-gyu, from Suwon Youth Maetan Middle-Maetango, made his K-League debut at the age of 18 in 2019 when he was a high school student. He was the first field player to sign a semi-professional contract in the K-League at the time.
This is the third win of his career. He has already lifted the championship trophy twice in Korea. He won the FA Cup in 2019 with Suwon Samsung and won the K League 2 in 2021 with Sangmu Gimcheon.
Last season, he appeared in 36 K-League games, scoring 13 goals and 3 assists, establishing himself as the league’s top striker. After being called up to the national team for a domestic evaluation match against Iceland in November last year, he was named in the Qatar World Cup reserve list (26+1) and was with the players throughout the tournament.
Oh Hyun-kyu, who joined Celtic on January 25, made his debut five days after moving the team. After the transfer, he has appeared in all of the team’s matches (6 matches) and is scoring 1 goal. 카지노
After winning the championship on the day, Oh Hyun-gyu promised through personal SNS (social network service), “We are an amazing team. We will never stop,” and then left a greeting in English, saying, “Thank you for your support.”
Meanwhile, Celtic, a prestigious Scottish team, reigns as the strongest in the league. This season, they are showing strong results with 24 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (73 points). The gap with the 2nd place Rangers (64 points) is also widening to 9 points, so there is a high possibility that another championship opportunity will come. Attention is focusing on whether Oh Hyun-kyu will add his 4th win to his career.
