Celtic: Fans call for Mikey Johnston to start in Glasgow derby after signing new contract

Celtic: Fans call for Mikey Johnston to start in Glasgow derby after signing new contract - Celtic

Celtic today announced that Mikey Johnston has signed a new five-year deal at Parkhead, keeping him with the Hoops until 2025.

The new was confirmed on the club’s official website celticfc.net and shared on their official Twitter channel @CelticFC.

The 20-year-old is a product of Celtic’s academy and has made 44 appearances for the first team, 17 of which have come this season.

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.

James Forrest has been deployed on the left flank in recent games, with Ryan Christie shifted to the right to accommodate Olivier Ntcham in an attacking midfield role.

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:
