THE BIG STORY: As it usually does these days, today’s main stories revolve around Patrick Roberts and Jonny Hayes. As predicted on the site yesterday, Patrick Roberts will not be returning to Celtic next season, with the Daily Record claiming that he will be 'given a chance' to impress Pep Guardiola on Manchester City's American tour. Of course, even if Roberts opts to leave City it seems that he will go to another club down south who have far more money than Celtic do. Such is fitba' these days.

Onto Jonny Hayes, who had a medical in London and last night flew to Glasgow to complete the deal to join Celtic.

With Brendan Rodgers returning to the club from his honeymoon on Monday I PREDICT that Hayes will be unveiled at Celtic Park on that day.

OTHER NEWS: With Celtic's pre-season training starting next week, we will be looking ahead to the new season, so it's time to bid a fond farewell to last season's Invincible Treble winners, and Celtic put up a video looking back on a remarkable season. Watch it below, and thanks for such a wonderful season Bhoys, as the video says, it was 'a season like no other'.
