Jonny Hayes has been slightly unfortunate in his time at Celtic.

The former Aberdeen winger had finally got a run of games in the first team last season when he broke his leg in a Boxing Day clash against Dundee.

Since then he has rarely featured for the Hoops, only making eight appearances so far this season.

It would make sense for all parties if he moved on in the January transfer window.

The signing of Hayes was understandable to an extent.

He had double figures in both assists and goals in his last season with the Dons.

He was also the only non-Celtic player to be nominated as PFA Scotland Player of the Year for the 2016-17 season.

However, Hayes just hasn’t got going with Celtic.

It was always going to be hard to displace the likes of James Forrest and Scott Sinclair in the Celtic side.

Those players are two of Brendan Rodgers’ mainstays in the team, and Hayes hasn’t been able to make the breakthrough.

The recent arrival of winger Oliver Burke has arguably put Hayes even further down the pecking order.

As a result, if he wants to get on with his career, perhaps he should look to move on in January.

He would probably do very well at most other teams in the Scottish Premiership, as he has already shown at Aberdeen.

Sometimes signings just don’t work out for a team, and this looks to be the case with Celtic and Jonny Hayes.
