Celtic: Peter Lawwell agrees to give Conor Hazard new contract - Celtic

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has given the go-ahead for Neil Lennon to offer young goalkeeper Conor Hazard a new contract.

Hazard rewarded

According to Football Insider, the club have decided to tie the 22-year-old’s future down at Parkhead with a long-term deal and discussions are currently taking place behind the scenes.

The report added that Celtic are hoping that the contract can be signed and sealed by the end of the calendar year, which is likely to see Hazard earn a significant salary increase.

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

Currently valued at £90k by TransferMarkt, the Northern Ireland international has leapt ahead of both Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas in the pecking order after featuring during his side’s 2-0 win against Kilmarnock last weekend and their 3-2 win over Lille in the Europa League.

Hazard has been sent on loan multiple times by the Glasgow giants to the likes of Partick Thistle, Falkirk and Dundee to accumulate valuable first-team experience, after which Lennon has given him the platform to shine for the reigning champions.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

This is exactly what Hazard deserves for all of the hard work and dedication he has put in since his move to the club in 2014.

Having kept two clean sheets from three outings (TransferMarkt), Lennon will be pleased with Hazard, who he previously described as “absolutely excellent.”

Whether he can continue his impressive form and keep the likes of Barkas and Bain out of the picture – remains to be seen.
