Celtic signed their fourth player of the January transfer window 24 hours ago, when South Korean striker Hyeongyu Oh joined the club, and he is already in training with his new teammates at Celtic Park.

The Hoops uploaded an interview with the player to their official YouTube channel recently, which featured the forward discussing his move to Celtic and the type of player that he is.

Here are some of the most interesting remarks Oh made during the interview:

I’m a very aggressive player who also likes the physical side. I also 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. This is the moment I have dreamed of and I’m really excited to perform in front of the fans at the stadium.


The part that will intrigue the Celtic fans the most about Oh’s comments is when he talks about being an aggressive player who likes the physical side of the game. With those remarks, it makes sense that the player is coming into the club as Georgios Giakoumakis’ replacement in the Celtic squad.

Hopefully Oh will be able to showcase the aggressive and physical side of his game without getting on the bad side of referees in Scottish football, but only time will tell on that front.

The fact that he wants score a lot of goals and win the league title is also good to hear, and who knows, perhaps the player will have a big role to play as the Hoops aim to win a second Scottish Premiership title in a row.

With Giakoumakis leaving the Hoops, Oh might well be involved quite a bit in the next few months for Celtic, as we know that Ange Postecoglou likes to give players a debut almost as soon as they join the club. It could be a bit too early for Oh to feature against Dundee United, but it wouldn’t be a shock exactly to see him on the Celtic bench, especially if the player feels fit and ready to play for the Hoops.

Oh is certainly saying all the right things, but the proof will be on the pitch. The fact that Ange Postecoglou was so keen to bring the player to Celtic should give fans enough confidence though that the player will do a good job for the Hoops.
