Some Celtic fans were split over the performance of Jonny Hayes even though the Hoops defeated Ross County 3-0.
The left-back had a difficult day defensively, especially in the first-half when Ross County created some good chances which came down his side.
However, he was praised for his crossing ability.
As a result, Celtic fans on social media had differing views on the player’s performance. One fan said that he put in some ‘superb’ crosses, whilst another claimed that Hayes was ‘rank rotten’.
Fans offer differing views
Here are the best reactions from social media to the left-back’s performance:
We are repeatedly been opened up by a simple ball down our left. Hayes continually caught upfield and Jozo just positionally poor and caught under the ball as usual.
Hope for an injection of energy in the second half

Celtic shocking so far , Hayes and Ntcham are woeful , another goal blast like last time they were here is badly needed

Hayes’ crosses have been superb today. Not always but they are today.

New Left back now. Taylor isn’t getting a game and isn’t that convincing, Boli is rotten and Hayes is poor.

No spark in the team, far to pedestrian. Johnny Hayes has put in some me great balls…that’s my only positive. Sort it out Celtic

Jonny Hayes is rank rotten

All the Ross County danger is coming down our left… They’ve had two great chances now. They will take the next one if Hayes and Jozo don’t wake up.

Hayes loves the team but hes no a left back and wont ever be, let Taylor bed in and see what he has to offer

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Hayes. He is out of contract at the end of the season, and as yet has not agreed a deal to be at the club next season.
Hoops boss is a fan of the player
You can tell that Neil Lennon is a fan of Hayes hough, which is why he has played him in some big games for the Hoops this season.
The good news for Celtic is that the indifferent performance from Hayes didn’t have an outcome on the game, as the Hoops still managed to pick up the three points.
It will be intriguing to see if Hayes keeps his place in the team for the midweek game at St Johnstone. With Greg Taylor and Boli Bolingoli waiting in the wings, Lennon may decide to give one of those players a chance.
Only time will tell, but Hayes will probably feature for the Hoops most weeks this season.
