Celtic today announced that Mikey Johnston has signed a new five-year deal at Parkhead, keeping him with the Hoops until 2025.
— Celtic Football Club (from 🏡) (@CelticFC) December 28, 2019
The left winger has scored six goals so far in 2019/20, the most recent of which came against Ross County at the start of this month, although he has only started once since his return from a thigh injury earlier in the campaign.
Some of those tweaks by Neil Lennon have not gone down well with a portion of Celtic fans and, following confirmation of Johnston’s new contract, these Hoops supporters on Twitter have called for the 20-year-old to be restored to the team on the left wing for tomorrow’s Glasgow derby against Rangers:
Great news! Reward him further by starting him tomorrow. Ran riot at Ibrox in September and it would mean Forrest and Christie are in their natural positions. 🍀
