It’s nice to be back writing on MyBetBuddy and I’ve decided to get started by having a look at the upcoming Scottish Premiership season and some of the signings that have really caught my eye ahead of the big kick-off.

Jonny Hayes To Aberdeen From Celtic

The 33-year-old made a return to Pittodrie last month after three trophy-laden seasons at Celtic Park and could provide Derek McInnes’ men with a dynamism that hasn’t always been there since Jonny Hayes departed for Parkhead in 2017.

The Irish wide-man will be a welcome addition to Aberdeen’s squad and returns a different player, having found himself featuring more regularly as a left-back in the final campaign of his Celtic career last season. His new-found tactical flexibility will be a real plus to McInnes, who likes to switch between systems and with Hayes comfortable playing all the way up the left-hand side, will be a key cog in a side with expectations of finishing third.

Hayes took a “significant financial sacrifice” to secure a two-year deal at his former side, a step that helps his club and probably wasn’t necessary for a man whose signature was in demand before penning his Pittodrie deal.
