Celtic’s strength is also revealed in the replacement list.
Celtic won 5-1 against St Mirren in the 28th round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2022-23 season held at St Mirren Park in Paisley, Scotland on the 5th at 9pm (hereinafter referred to as Korean time). Celtic, who added 3 points, firmly maintained their lead (76 points).
On this day, Celtic was hit from the start. At the beginning of the first half, they gave away a penalty kick (PK) and were in danger as they conceded. The league undefeated record since October and the recent six-game winning streak seemed to be broken. Losing to St Mirren, who are in 6th place, was a fatal blow for Celtic, who are competing for the championship. When Charles Dunn was sent off in the 38th minute and put on a numerical advantage, Celtic made a change through substitution.
With the start of the second half, Riel Abada strengthened the attack. After entering Amabada, the offensive mobility was strengthened, and Jota and Alesteer Johnston scored one after another. Celtic, who gained momentum, added Matt O’Reilly and Oh Hyun-kyu in the 21st minute of the second half. From the 25th minute of the second half, the substitute players continued to score. In the 25th minute of the second half, Avada tasted the goal, and in the 27th minute of the second half, O’Reilly scored.
The finishing touch was Oh Hyun-gyu. In the 35th minute of the second half, Oh Hyeon-kyu acted as the kicker of the PK he created and scored, scoring his 2nd goal of the season and his 1st goal in the league. It was also his 250th goal under Angers Posteglu. Oh Hyun-kyu’s goal gave Celtic a 5-1 victory. They recorded 7 consecutive wins in the league and reached 76 points, increasing the gap to 2nd place Rangers to 9 points. 이브벳 토토
Scotland’s ‘Celtic Quick News’ said on the 6th, “All those whom Posteglu chose as replacements performed with dignity. Avada O’Reilly and Oh Hyun-kyu scored side by side, and Sid Haksanovic and Iwata Tomoki, who also played as substitutes, also performed well. It was good,” he said. Celtic midfielder Chris Comonso highlighted Celtic’s strong squad, saying “the Celtic substitutes will be a regular at Rangers”.
Commons also said, “The Rangers’ starting squad is composed of players from previous manager Steven Gerrard. Rangers have been stagnant and have failed to recruit players. “The difference between Rangers is huge. Posteglu has made Celtic a ruthless team, scoring 250 goals in 99 games. Rangers are clearly behind Celtic and the fans are disappointed.”
