SOUTH KOREAN striker Oh Hyeon-gyu makes his first start for Celtic in this afternoon’s Premiership match against Aberdeen at Parkhead.
The powerhouse 21-year-old stiker is one of three changes from the team that beat St Mirren 5-1 in the Scottish Cup a week ago.
Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley come into the midfield alongside Callum McGregor, while Oh, who scored his first goal against the Paisley side, leads the line with Kyogo Furuhashi among the stand-by squad.
TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; Hatate, McGregor, O’Riley; Jota, Oh, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Kyogo, Haksabanovic, Abada, Kobayashi, Iwata, Bernabei, Forrest, Ralston.
