Jonny Hayes’ commitment to Celtic can never be called into question, and the versatile 32-year-old emphasised that point once again during Sunday’s League Cup final win.

Hayes confirmed after the victory that he was not fully fit prior to the game, before stating “it’s a cup final playing for Celtic. You patch yourself up, get yourself ready and get on with the job.”

What Hayes did not mention in the interview was that he also suffered another injury just past the hour mark, and was reportedly later seen with a cast on his foot according to Twitter user @scottdickson67.

And these supporters shared their praise for Hayes’ mentality.

Hayes will never be remembered as the most technically gifted player in the squad, and he would probably admit that himself, but his passion for the club can’t be faulted.

Do you think Hayes deserves a new deal?



The 32-year-old will give 110 per cent every time he takes to the pitch, and players like that are invaluable for manager’s to have.

Neil Lennon will no doubt be hoping to extend his contract by at least another year, with his current deal set to expire next summer.
