‘Underrated And Overhated’ ‘Let’s Not Get Carried Away’ Fans Debate Celtic Ace’s Start To The Season

Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu scored his second and third goals of the season during the 6-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend.

Even though the South Korean international hasn’t been afforded a lot of game time by manager Brendan Rodgers, he has still averaged a goal every 85 minutes.

Oh’s brace on Sunday afternoon has got supporters on X debating his start to the campaign, with some believing he deserves more love from the fanbase:

One strong performance won’t silence the doubters

Many fans feel that the Hoops need to go into the transfer market in the New Year to strengthen the forward line.

With Oh having only scored once before the Aberdeen game, there was a good deal of justification for doing just that, so whether one game will alter people’s opinions, we shall have to wait and see.

Rodgers is not convinced by Oh

Considering that Kyogo Furuhashi has had to play so many matches, it was hoped that Oh could shoulder some of the burden.

However, for whatever reason, Rodgers has been reluctant to put the 22-year-old in from the start of games, with the Ross County fixture the only time that he has been given the nod. Perhaps after the double at the weekend, Oh will get more opportunities.
