Celtic fans were shocked by the suspected leg break that Jonny Hayes suffered against Dundee.

Taking the ball in the centre of the park the hoops winger was on the receiving end of a crude challenge from Josh Meekings that immediately looked worrying.

Play continued as Dundee approached the Celtic penalty box but referee Kevin Clancy sensed that something was up and brought the game to a halt.

While Meekings hobbled off Hayes looked in a bad way as a stretcher was called as he was treated on the park.

Eventually he was replaced by Mikey Johnston with the intensity dropping from Celtic’s play almost in acknowledgement of the extent of the injury to Hayes.

Celtic were already leading thanks to an early goal from James Forrest with Leigh Griffiths doubling the lead before half-time.
