With just four months left on his current deal has signed a two year to his contract.

The young keeper has made seven appearances this season but recently dropped down to third choice before returning to the bench against and Aberdeen.

Until he was thrown in for his debut at home to Lille in December the young Irishman was relatively unknown to the support but 10 days later he was a hero with two saves in the penalty shoot-out to complete the Quadruple Treble with a Scottish Cup Final win over Hearts.

Hazard was dropped ahead of the January 2 trip to Ibrox but returned to favour when and Vasilis Barkas were forced to self-isolate following the training trip to Dubai.

Should Hazard be first choice keeper for the rest of this season

Yes, we have to see if he can cut it

With so much uncertainty around it seems a fairly safe move for the club to get the keeper onto a new contract rather than lose him in the summer. It has to be assumed that Hazard has a promise of being better than third choice going forward.

Who’ll be managing Hazard remains the big question but almost all reacted positively to news of his new contract.
