THE BIG STORY: With news that Celtic have agreed a fee with Aberdeen it seems inevitable that Jonny Hayes will become Celtic's first signing of the summer. The player, who was the only non-Celt nominated for player of the year, scored 11 goals last season and more importantly had 24 assists, which is more than either Patrick Roberts or James Forrest had.
I would imagine that Hayes will be a first choice in the team, he has the ability to play on both wings and spending only £1.3 million on a player with double figures in both goals and assists seems like a very good deal to me. I've seen some grumblings about the move online, but Brendan Rodgers has worked with the player before and has also seen close-up how valuable a player Hayes can be, as he scored twice against Celtic last month. We wish him well in his up-coming career at Celtic Park.
OTHER NEWS: Fraser Forster has encouraged the likes of Moussa Dembele to stay at Celtic for a good while yet as it is 'such a special place'. Naturally we endorse Fraser's comments.
As we reported yesterday, Scott Allan has joined Dundee on a season long loan. Will he ever play for Celtic again? Nope.
