Celtic: Journalist criticises Conor Hazard in bizarre tirade - Celtic News

Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard has been described as a player that is “nowhere near the standard” by journalist Hugh Keevins.

Hazard scrutinised

The 22-year-old has been part of the Bhoys’ youth setup since 2014 and has worked into his way into the first-team this season, following various loan spells in the last six years.

In the Scottish Premiership this season, Hazard has yet to concede a goal from three appearances has been impressive since breaking through.

With talks about being rewarded with a new contract, one person is not a fan of his.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

Writing in his Daily Record column, Keevins let rip at Hazard, suggesting that his surname is an indication of his experience to play against Celtic’s arch-rivals.

“But first of all it’s necessary to explore everything regarding the person named Hazard and the situation that is hazardous by nature,” he said.

“The young Irishman saved two penalties against Hearts to win Celtic a quadruple Treble last weekend.

“That’s an amazing start, but it’s not quite the point.

“Hazard has nowhere near the standard of experience necessary for a fixture that would effectively end Celtic’s dream of 10-in-a-row if they lose to Rangers.”

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Keevins’ pointers are difficult to comprehend. Sure, if Hazard was leaking goals left right and centre, experience would probably be the best option, taking into context the magnitude of the game.

However, this is not the case, due to the fact that Hazard has performed exemplary since his introduction, and saved two penalties on their way to the club’s unprecedented achievement.

If he was asked whether he wanted to see Hazard or Barkas feature against Rangers, there is only one answer, looking at what the supporters have seen this season.
