‘I like this’, ‘fully behind him’: Some Celtic fans react to club’s ‘excellent’ announcement

A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to welcome the news that Conor Hazard has signed a new contract at Parkhead.

The 22-year-old, who came through the ranks at Celtic has put pen to paper on a new deal until the summer of 2023.

Hazard made his Bhoys first-team debut earlier this season in the 3-2 Europa League win over Lille.

The Northern Ireland international Hazard then picked up his first medal in December.

He saved two of Hearts’ spot-kicks in the penalty shootout in the delayed 2020 Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park, following a 3-3 draw.

To date, Hazard has made eight competitive senior appearances for the Hoops.

Speaking to the Celtic media team after penning his new contract, his ambition is to get more regular first-team football in green and white.

“You haven’t seen the best of me yet, there’s still a lot more to come,” he said.

 

“I know I’m 22 years of age and have a lot to learn but I know I have the potential to get there.”

And quite a few Celtic fans were pleased with the news, praising and congratulating Hazard on social media:
