CONFIRMATION of the arrival of Oh Hyeon-Gyu from Suwon Samsung Bluewings wasn’t the only piece of good news for Celtic fans today.

That’s because eagle-eyed Hoops fans noticed in the training video which accompanied his signing – taken yesterday – that key defensive duo Cameron Carter-Vickers and Greg Taylor are both fit.

The Hoops central defender hasn’t played since the Viaplay Cup semi-final clash against Kilmarnock at Hampden.

And Scotland man Taylor hasn’t featured since limping off in the early stages of the 2-2 draw against Rangers at Ibrox with a hamstring injury.

Barring any setbacks, however, both men appear set to return as Celtic visit Tannadice on league duty on Sunday after being pictured in the CelticTV clip.

With Oh also available to take his place in the squad, Ange Postecoglou will have some decisions to make when it comes to his line-up.

Another man who appears in the training video is Giorgos Giakoumakis, although its thought that he could be soon to join Atlanta United in the MLS.

Oh, meanwhile, said it was a dream come true to join a “major club” like Celtic.

He told Celtic TV: “I’m happy to be playing at one of the top clubs and I’m delighted that my dream has come true.  

“I’m a very aggressive player who also likes the physical side. I also like to score lots of goals.

“I feel like I’m on a movie set and I’m really excited to be in the city and I’m looking forward to the upcoming games.

“One of my aims is to score a lot of goals and I also have ambitions of winning the league championship.

“Ki Sung-yeung and Cha Du-ri are two of the players I respect the most.

“I have seen them playing for Celtic and I’m now happy to have the Celtic badge on my chest and working with the team on its goals. 

“This is the moment I have dreamed of and I’m really excited to perform in front of the fans at the stadium. 

“The fact [the club already have Asian players] will definitely be helpful but we have common things and as they have successfully adapted here I would also like to do the same.”
