AS the Celtic fans celebrated the champions’ fourth goal, there was a moment between two of their heroes that thousands would have missed amid the jubilation.
Oh Hyeon-gyu, a substitute for the first-half’s two-goal marksman Kyogo Furuhashi, headed in a delightful left-wing cross from Filipe Jota which left Aberdeen keeper Kelle Roos stranded as the ball soared into the top corner.
The powerhouse South Korean, who also claimed the fifth and final strike in the 5-0 end-of-season Premiership romp in Paradise, insisted on playing homage to the Portuguese ace’s right foot after the opportunity had been set up on a plate.
Wrong foot, though – it was the left that produced the deft flick from the wing.

Carl Starfelt thumped in an unstoppable header from a Matt O’Riley right-wing corner-kick to claim his third goal of the campaign – not bad going for the Swedish defender who had to wait until a 5-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in mid-August for his first Hoops counter.
For the record, the £4.2million recruit from Russian side Ruben Kazan in July 2021 netted his second goal in the 9-0 rampage against Dundee United at Tannadice a fortnight after his breakthrough effort in Ayrshire.
