Video shows Celtic’s Jonny Hayes hit by bottle during Ibrox celebrations

Celtic’s Jonny Hayes had a lucky escape after he was hit by a bottle during post-match celebrations at Ibrox.

The goalscoring hero doubled Celtic’s lead with a late strike to cap a dominant performance by Neil Lennon’s men.

CelticTV’s Unique Angle footage of the post-match scenes shows Hayes celebrating along with his teammates in front of the jubilant Hoops fans.

A bottle flies onto the pitch from the Broomloan stand, hosting the home support, and bounces several feet in the air, narrowly missing Vakoun Issouf Bayo before hitting Hayes.

Hayes pauses his celebrations as the bottle lands on the ground behind him before rejoining the party.

The incident can be seen at 43 seconds on the video below.

It’s unclear if it’s a glass bottle or plastic. If it’s the latter, it would most likely have to be full to bounce as high as that on the grass.

If it’s the former, then it’s only a matter of luck that no one was injured by the clown who threw it.

Last year Scott Sinclair could have been seriously injured when a yob hurled a glass bottle at him at Easter Road.

The Celtic winger was about to take a corner when a Buckfast half-bottle whistled past him during Celtic’s Scottish Cup win in March.

    It should be easy to identify the genius who threw it. There were only two or three of them left in the ground by then!

    Not holding my breath on this one.
    Just another thing the SPFL & SFA will choose to ignore.

    Don’t expect Anything to be done in this incident. This sort sort of JUSTICE has been going on for centuries.
    You will have to dismantle the present SFA and ASSEMBLE a fair board of men, NOT A BOARD OF TRUE AND HONEST MEN.
