The Celtic Boys said, “I came to the World Cup because Oh Hyun-kyu sacrificed his seat for me.” He was the most important player in the squad,” said Son Heung-min to Oh Hyun-kyu.
Oh Hyun-gyu did not make it to the 26-man final list at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, but accompanied the team as a reserve player to prepare for Son Heung-min’s incomplete physical condition.
Not only did he accompany the drills, but he also helped the players train by taking on an auxiliary role, such as fetching the ball. Son Heung-min said in an interview returning to Korea, “What I want to say here is that I want to say thank you so much to (Oh) Hyun-kyu, and in fact, Hyun-kyu seems to have played the most important role among the players I played with in this World Cup.” I was grateful for picking it up.
British media Sky Sports said on the 23rd, “Scotland Celtic will finalize the contract with Oh Hyun-kyu within a few days. Personal conditions have already been agreed.” The transfer fee is known to be 2.5 million pounds (approximately 4 billion won).
Oh Hyun-kyu, who signed a semi-professional contract with Suwon in 2019, debuted wearing a blue Suwon uniform that year and played 11 games. Afterwards, he joined Sangmu early to solve his military service, and returned to Suwon after being discharged to save Suwon from being in danger of being relegated. Along with his 13 league goals, he scored the winning goal in extra time against FC Anyang in the promotion playoff.
