Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has some good news for Hoops supporters surrounding the news of midfielder Jonny Hayes after the midfielder was carried off the field with a suspected broken bone in his leg today.
The former Aberdeen and Inverness winger has struggled to get into the club’s starting XI since moving from Pittodrie last summer, but was handed his second consecutive Premiership start today against Dundee at Dens Park – only for it to end in a disaster.

His hefty clash with Josh Meekings saw both players go off injured but Hayes looked in a far worse state and was carried from the field by stretcher.
It looked like it could be a long-term injury for the Irishman but his manager was the bearer of good news in his post-match press conference:
Brendan Rodgers says he’s delighted with the hunger his players showed in the 2-0 win over Dundee.
Says Jonny Hayes will go for an x-ray but hopefully not as serious as it first looked.
Says he’s not been informed of any bids for any of his players. pic.twitter.com/GC0zYj7WsG

So, that’s not a guarantee he’ll be OK but it’s certainly a much brighter prognosis that the ones being dished out on social media a little earlier today.
What did you think of the challenge, and Hayes’s form?
