Celtic won 4-2 against Ross County in the first round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2023-24 season held at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland on the 5th at 8:30 pm (hereinafter referred to as Korean time). Celtic, who won the domestic treble last season, showed the dignity of the defending champion by recording a 4-point victory from the opening game.

Starting with Brandon Rodgers, Celtic started with a 4-2-3-1 formation. Furuhashi, Avada, Maeda, O’Reilly, Dunbull, McGregor, Ralston, Carter Vickers, Nabrotsky, Taylor and Hart started. The Korean league trio Hyunkyu Oh, Hyeonjun Yang, and Hyukkyu Kwon started from the bench.

Celtic took an early lead. Celtic, who took the lead with Turnbull’s penalty kick (PK) goal, made it 2-0 with an additional goal from Furuhashi in the 26th minute of the first half. Turnbull scored the second goal in the 42nd minute to make it 3-0 at halftime. Celtic, who took the lead early, conceded a goal in the 15th minute of the second half, but in the 21st minute of the second half, Starfelt and Hatate were put in to secure mobility.

O’Reilly widened the gap in the 28th minute of the second half when he received a pass from Furuhashi and scored. When they got the chance to win, Celtic put in Yang Hyeon-jun along with Forest in the 34th minute of the second half. Hyunjun Yang is a freshman who came to Celtic this summer along with Hyukkyu Kwon. Yang Hyeon-jun, who entered the position of Avada, was in charge of attacking the right side.

It is necessary to know about Yang Hyun-joon. Yang Hyun-jun made his debut at Gangwon FC in the 2021 season and won the Young Player Award in the 2022 season K-League 1 with 8 goals and 4 assists in 36 games. In last year’s friendly against Tottenham Hotspur, he was known to the public for his sharp dribbling through Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez. Although he did not make his A-match debut, he was also selected for the South Korea A national team.

He raised his expectations this season by winning the uniform number 7, which symbolizes the ace, in Gangwon. His overall performance was disappointing, but Celtic, who saw his potential, offered him an offer. After a tug-of-war with Gangwon, he confirmed his transfer to Celtic. He succeeded in advancing to the European stage by coming to Celtic with Kwon Hyuk-gyu. Yang Hyeon-Jun’s strength is dribbling, and he is a winger who mainly plays the right side of the attack.

As soon as he was put in, Yang Hyun-joon showed his strength by entering the penalty box with a bold dribble breakthrough from the right side. In the 42nd minute of the second half, he became the starting point for a counterattack. When Ross County’s corner kick was canceled, Yang Hyun-Jun passed the ball directly to Hatate. Hatate’s pass led to Maeda and was delivered to Forrest, but the shot was blocked by the goalkeeper.

Celtic conceded an extra run just before the end of the game. James Brown struck boldly from the right. I tried shooting with the defender in front, but the trajectory changed completely after being hit by Karl Starfeld’s foot. It was an unstoppable trajectory. Despite conceding a goal, the match ended in Celtic’s 4-2 win.

Pat Bonaire, a player who played for Celtic in the past and a Celtic critic, praised Hyun-Jun Yang through the British ‘BBC’. He praised Yang Hyun-jun, saying, “Yang Hyun-jun looks so good. Britain’s ‘The Boot Room’ also said, “Yang Hyun-jun played for the last 10 minutes and showed an active appearance as a cameo. Yang Hyun-jun came to Celtic for 2 million pounds (about 3.3 billion won). Yang Hyun-jun, who has a good start in the beginning, needs to be watched.” lighted up.

Jota was the player responsible for Celtic’s flank attack until last season. Then he made a new nest in Saudi Arabia on his way to Al Ittihad this summer. Celtic, who sent Jota, brought in several strikers, including Yang Hyun-jun. I was curious about who would fill the void at the steering wheel, but Yang Hyun-joon definitely proved his competitiveness.

Yang Hyun-joon said at the press conference on July 27, “Playing for Celtic is very exciting. I’ve been waiting for this day. I’m so happy that I’m still in my dream. Oh Hyeon-kyu advised me, “To become mentally stronger, you need to think more independently.”

He also said, “I like a stadium full of fans. I will show my aggressive side in front of the fans. My strength is dribbling. I play with the team first. (Gangwon) Considering the situation, the decision to transfer was not easy, but it was worth waiting for the offer.” “Many people and coaches advised me that it is better to transfer in summer than winter. I want to meet my new coach and colleagues quickly. I also want to play in front of fans quickly,” he said.
