If any of our rivals were watching last night, one of the things that would have troubled them most would have been the performance of big Oh.

Now, as regular readers will know I thought this guy was on the way to being a real star under Ange Postecoglou. I think he can do even better under Brendan Rodgers, a manager who knows how to improve the skill-set players already have and take them to greater heights.

This guy was heading for the top either way.

Rodgers will get him there quicker than ever, and with fellow Koreans in the team – and especially Yung on the right with whom I thought he looked like he was forming the beginnings of a partnership – he might even pull others up with him.

I like everything about this guy, from his physicality to his ease and comfort on the ball. He brims with confidence. He exudes calm. He roughs up defenders, yes, but he’s also great first touch and awareness. He is developing a keen eye for goal.

We have three excellent forward options in this squad, but all three are different sorts of players. Ange never really tried to put two of them together. I think Brendan might find a way to utilise all three in a team.

After all, if we go three at the back that opens up the two man forward line and if we’re playing an advance 3-5-2 then we put Maeda out wide and have Kyogo and Oh both through the middle; I don’t know how any defence in Scotland will cope with that, and these two, if they learn to combine the best of their traits, will prove the equal of many a European defence too.

To me, he just looks better with every game that he plays right now. With his countrymen around him he can only improve further, and between that and Brendan Rodgers applying his laser-like focus on the areas where Oh can improve …

I think this guy could be the breakthrough star of the show this season, and do real damage in this title race.
