Reports in Ireland suggest JONNY HAYES will be out for 4-6 months after a scan revealed the player has suffered a broken tibia after a challenge from Dundee’s Josh Meekings.
The Irishman who was just starting to come onto a game for his new club will be gutted at the news, as are the fans.
Hayes and Meekings went for the ball in Celtic’s 2-0 win over the Tayside club and all of Meekings wait landed on the ankle of Hayes.
The midfielder immediately realised something was wrong and called to the bench, Hayes was subsequently stretchered off.
Brendan Rodgers was hopeful the player didn’t come off too bad but today’s news is a blow to the manager and Jonny.
Jonny will now miss the rest of this season and the start of next.
We wish him all the best with his recovery, he is at a great club with the best doctors on hand.
We await confirmation from the club about this, with the story of his impending surgery broken by the Irish Independent.
