South Koreans abroad: Koo Ja-Cheol scores against Bayern Munich while Ki Sung-Yueng & Cha Du-Ri celebrate SPL title

The in-form Augsburg man scored his fourth goal for his new club, while there was title success for Celtic's two South Koreans
Koo Ja-Cheol continued his fine form with Augsburg with a goal in their hard-fought 2-1 defeat away to Bayern Munich in Germany's Bundesliga on Saturday.

The South Korean attacker, who has now scored four goals since his January loan move from Wolfsburg to Augsburg, netted the equaliser on 23 minutes.

In the first minute Mario Gomez had put Bayern ahead but Augsburg gradually came into the game and were level when Koo struck.

Axel Bellinghausen broke down the left after Jerome Boateng's error and his central ball found Koo who fired home from the edge of the box with a shot which Manuel Neuer couldn't prevent.

Gomez, though, would once again have the final say, tapping home Arjen Robben square ball for the winner on the hour mark.

In Scotland's Premier League, Ki Sung-Yueng and Cha Du-Ri celebrated clinching the title as Celtic crushed Kilmarnock 6-0 on Saturday. The win gave Celtic an unassailable 18-point lead with five games to play.

Ki, whose set-pieces causes Killie issues all afternoon, played his part in the opening goal too, which came thanks to Charlie Mulgrew on eight minutes.

The South Korean midfielder fired in a powerful drive which was deflected for a corner. From the resulting set-piece, Ki delivered for Mulgrew to head home.

Ki went on to play with full game, as goals from Glenn Loovens, Mulgrew again, Anthony Stokes and a Gary Hooper brace, sealed the win and title. Cha was an unused substitute.
