Celtic winger Mikey Johnston has, unfortunately, been out of action since January.

However, the 21-year-old has been the subject of discussion with some Hoops supporters in recent days.

The Parkhead academy graduate has only featured in 465 minutes of Scottish Premiership action since the beginning of the 2019/20 season.

Johnston had to undergo surgery on a knee issue in August after initially suffering knee ligament damage in a match against St Johnstone at the beginning of the year.

These Celtic fans discussed Johnston on social media.

@CelticDown shared this tweet about the wide man, which led to these fans replying ahead of the player’s long-awaited return to the first-team fold.

Should Johnston be used more when he returns?



Johnston has become somewhat of a forgotten man at Parkhead over the last 12 months due to calf and knee injuries, and his return will give Neil Lennon another attacking option.

Wide man James Forrest is also currently out injured, which has left Lennon tinkering between a back three and four in recent weeks.
