Jonny Hayes was the opposite of a ‘project’ when he signed as a 29-year-old for £1.3m from Aberdeen three years ago. We paid a premium and knew we would never turn a profit on the player, but even as a squad player, he was value for money.
For the rest of his life he will answer questions about his length-of-the-pitch run and goal at Ibrox early this season. For all the medals he collected in his three years at Celtic, that goal is a special memory.
At 32 he is young and good enough to perform at a level above most of our Premiership rivals, he will have no problem getting fixed up.
Best of luck, Jonny.
