Celtic win Scottish Cup… Oh completes treble in debut European season

South Korean international striker Oh Hyun-kyu, who plays for Scottish professional football club Celtic, has won a triple treble in the club’s first season in Europe.

Celtic defeated Inverness 3-1 in the Scottish Cup final of the 2022-2023 season at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland, on Thursday (4 April).

Oh, who joined Celtic in January from K League One side Suwon Samsung, enjoyed a treble in his first season in Europe.

The Hoops took the lead in the 38th minute when Matt O’Reilly’s pass from the right was met by Furuhashi’s unstoppable finish from the edge of the area.

Oh Hyun-gyu, who came on for Furuhashi 14 minutes into the second half, was the ‘starting point’ for what turned out to be the game-winning goal in the 20th minute.

On the counter-attack, Oh’s pass down the left led to Callum McGregor’s assist and Riel Abada’s finish.

Celtic conceded in the 39th minute through Daniel McKay, but Jota’s goal in stoppage time sealed the 3-1 victory 먹튀검증.
