Craigan slams reported Celtic January transfer plans, names 30-yr-old as a warning sign
BT Sports pundit Stephen Craigan has warned Jack Hendry and Lewis Morgan to look at what happened to Jonny Hayes before agreeing to join Celtic.
The Daily Mail has reported that the Dundee and St Mirren players have recently been linked with moves to the Bhoys in the January transfer window.
Speaking on the BT Sports Scottish football Facebook live chat, former Motherwell man Craigan told the pair to think long and hard before moving to Glasgow and slammed the Hoops’ transfer plans to sign them.
“Is Jonny Hayes the warning sign for players in Scotland? If you go to Celtic you might not play,” he said.
Hayes, 30, was the only non-Celtic player nominated for player of the year last season, after a fine season with Aberdeen.
He joined the Hoops in the summer for around £1million, and has been a bit part player so. He did turn in a good performance in the recent 5-1 win over Motherwell but was then left out of the squad completely for the final Champions League group stage match with Anderlecht.

Celtic return to league action against Hibs, looking to maintain their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, which currently stands at four over Aberdeen, although they do have two games in hand on the Pittodrie side.
It is the type of game that Hayes could well be involved, due to the recent indifferent form of Scott Sinclair and Stuart Armstrong.
