Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Celtic’s South Korean striker, Oh, has picked up a calf injury and will be out for four to six weeks.
In his pre-match interview with Sky Sports ahead of Celtic’s journey to Pittodrie to play Aberdeen, Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers confirmed that Oh has picked up a calf injury and will be missing for a couple of weeks. Oh could be out of action for several weeks as he undergoes treatment for his injured leg.
Although Oh’s injury is unfortunate, it highlights a growing problem with the current Celtic squad. It shows that we may lack squad depth and could be vulnerable through several injuries. For example, with Oh out for the next few weeks, Kyogo is our only recognised striker. It is true that his fellow countryman, Daizen Maeda can also play upfront, but the point stands: Celtic lack depth up front. If Kyogo gets injured, this season’s campaign could be in serious trouble.
With the recent news of Carl Starfelt’s exit from Paradise, Celtic are already in the market for a replacement at the back. So, maybe it could be worthwhile seeking out another player to add to the depth upfront while the transfer window is still open?
