Celtic winger Jonny Hayes has brilliantly hit back at a Rangers fan who mocked one of his team-mates.

Mikael Lustig, who's out of contract this month, posted a montage of his best bits in an emotional Instagram video ahead of potentially leaving Celtic after seven years of service.

One Rangers supporter joked that the veteran Swedish right-back has been a great 'servant' to the Ibrox side down in the years in a response which goaded Hayes.

The Irish winger responded: "Yeah you've done well with all them trophies since he arrived."

 

It's a cutting response by Hayes in light of the fact that Rangers haven't won a major trophy since 2011.

If Lustig goes, and it looks increasingly likely that he will, then the 32-year-old will leave Parkhead having won 16 trophies in Glasgow - including eight Premiership titles and, of course, the treble Treble.

He is a bonafide Celtic legend and Hayes will go up in a lot of supporters' estimations for the way in which he dealt with the Rangers fan.
