Celtic supporters have been given a brief insight into what to expect from January recruit Hyeongyu Oh by the K-League Twitter account.

The 21-year-old became the Hoops fourth signing of the winter window, joining Alistair Johnston, Yuki Kobayashi and Tomoki Iwata at the club.

And the move could turn out to be another shrewd piece of business conducted by Ange Postecoglou and his recruitment staff, signing the striker for around £2.5 million.

Although Celtic fans will be delighted to see the Bhoys sign a new number nine, the majority of supporters won’t know too much about our latest signing.

Postecoglou and the player himself have given some insight into what are the best parts of his game, which are his physicality and working hard for the team.

However, the official English K-League Twitter account gave the Parkhead faithful a better look at what they should come to expect from Celtic’s new number 19.

The account, which has over 100,000 followers on social media, posted footage from one of Oh’s best-performing months at his former club Suwon Samsung Bluewings.

Last September, the striker was nominated for the K-League player of the month after scoring four goals in five appearances.

The South Korean international scored a variety of different strikes, including headers, one-on-one finishes and from the penalty spot. Check out some of the footage below for a better look at Celtic’s newest signing.

For a young striker, it is impressive to see the variety of goals he was able to score across the month of September, which helped him reach a tally of 14 in 2022.

There is a lot to like about the youngster, and you can see why Ange Postecoglou and his recruitment staff were desperate to get him in the door.

The most exciting part about Oh’s signing is that he still has plenty of room for development, and he will only continue getting stronger under the stewardship of the former Socceroos boss.

Here’s hoping we can soon see the striker scoring similar goals in Scotland in the coming weeks and months once he settles into life in Glasgow.
