Celtic are expecting to offer a contract extension to Jonny Hayes but will allow Craig Gordon to go when his deal expires, Football Insider understands.
The Hoops are making early preparations for next season’s squad while they wait for decisions to be made on the current campaign being completed.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that Hayes, 32, is in line for a new deal to replace his existing agreement, which expires in June.
Gordon, who came close to joining Hearts in January before the move was blocked by Neil Lennon, is set to be released.
Like Hayes, the 37-year-old is out of contract but is preparing to move on after six trophy-fuelled years at Parkhead.
Celtic chiefs have already started looking for a new senior goalkeeper, with loanee Fraser Forster also in line to head back to Southampton at the end of the campaign.
Unlike Gordon, Hayes has been a key member of the playing squad this season as Lennon’s side hunt a remarkable fourth consecutive domestic treble.
The versatile midfielder has made 26 appearances in all competitions, and accumulated 1,104 minutes of senior action.
He had an extended spell filling in at left wing-back when the specialists were injured and unavailable.
