Jonny Hayes: Celtic winger confirms he is to leave Scottish champions

Jonny Hayes scored Celtic’s clinching goal in the 2-0 away win over Rangers in September

Out-of-contract Celtic winger Jonny Hayes has confirmed he is to leave the Scottish champions.

Hayes has made 67 appearances since signing from Aberdeen three years ago.

The 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international scored once last season – in an Old Firm victory at Rangers – as Celtic went on to win their ninth successive title in the curtailed Premiership campaign.

“Football at times brings tough decisions,” Hayes wrote on Instagram.
