THE SCOTTISH SUN 🔵 Oh handed Celtic exit chance as Euro club lead race for out-of-favour Hoops star

GENK are leading the race to sign Celtic striker Oh Hyeon-gyu.

SunSport last month revealed Brendan Rodgers was ready to consider offers for the South Korean.

Oh, 23, joined Celtic for around £2.5million in January 2023 and could rake in a similar fee.

Belgians Genk have moved to the front of the queue to sign him after opening talks.

But there is also interest from elsewhere in Europe for the South Korean cap.

Oh barely featured in the second half of the season and with Celtic chasing a permanent deal for Norwich City’s Adam Idah, he will be allowed to move on.
