After returning to Suwon after about five months, Oh Hyun-gyu said, “Thank you for welcoming me. I want the fans to know that I will always be with Suwon. I’m always grateful. Whether I’m at Celtic or wherever I am, please give me a lot of support.”

Oh left Suwon in January to join Celtic in Scotland. He joined his new team midway through the 2022-23 season, but settled in well. As a reserve striker, he scored six goals in all competitions and made an immediate impact on the Scottish scene. Within five months of joining Celtic, Oh won the league, FA Cup, and League Cup, helping the club to a triple treble.
Oh made his professional debut in a Suwon jersey in 2019 and played for the club for three seasons, excluding his time as a commercial. A graduate of Matan Middle and Matan High School, Oh is one of Suwon’s best strikers. He scored 14 goals last year to save Suwon from relegation.
