Celtic v Motherwell – Perfect game for Hyeongyu Oh to start

Saturday’s game at Paradise against Motherwell is another vital game as we look to grab another three points to take us 15 points clear of theRangers and wishing touching distance of  retaining the title.

The question that many Celtic supporters are asking is will Ange Postecoglou tinker with the starting XI with a view to the Scottish cup semi Final next weekend?

I can certainly see a couple of changes with that game in mind, but not wholesale changes as Ange will still want the strongest possible side on the pitch as we aim to wrap the title up as soon as possible.

Cameron Carter-Vickers could be be rested after the news that he’s playing through the pain barrier and needs an operation. Yuki Kobayashi could come in like he did at Kilmarnock on Sunday. The Japanese defender has proved he has the ability to play in this side. He oozes confidence and looks assured every time he’s been called on. His is clearly another shrewd signing made by the Celtic manager.

Another change I’d like to see is up top, Kyogo has been by far our best player this season and is a vital part of the side, but with the Scottish cup semi-final looming maybe a rest is in order for the Japanese striker? And with Hyeongyu Oh needing a start there is no better time to start him than on Saturday.

Oh needs a run of games to show what he can do, he’s shown glimpses of his class in his appearances from the bench, but he needs a full ninety minutes to prove himself in the Hoops. We can’t judge him solely on cameo appearances, so it’s time to give the lad the spotlight let him have the opportunity or prove himself.

If he does well, it gives him a big boost and the team will have another quality player to call on, it’s a win win. I’m confident the lad will take his opportunity if he gets it. Hopefully he gets to do that on Saturday. We will wait and see.
