Jonny Hayes was recalled to the Celtic league starting line-up for their 1-0 Scottish Premiership win over Partick Thistle on Friday night – and fans took to Twitter to deliver critical verdicts on his display.

Hayes had been omitted from the Hoops team for their opening day 4-1 win against Hearts at Parkhead last week.

But he was given the nod to start in the second match away at Partick as Olivier Ntcham scored the game’s only goal with a volley deflected off captain Scott Brown.

With James Forrest used as a false nine after getting the nod to lead the line ahead of Leigh Griffiths, Hayes was deployed in his favourite winger role.

The summer signing from Aberdeen played 62 minutes before making way for Griffiths, who had been surprisingly left on the bench.

Celtic fans were unforgiving about the performance of Hayes as they made their feelings known on social media.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
