Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata will miss tonight’s Europa League game against Suduva due to an injury.

Former player and BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton is not quite convinced about the situation. Boyata was declared fit by Rodgers last week but the Belgian is apparently injured once again.
Sutton tweeted: “Very confusing…. fit last week not this week??? What is going on??”.

The 27-year-old is unsettled right now and he wants to leave the club. This could be a plot to force the move by not playing.
The Celtic defender held talks with Rodgers and club captain Brown earlier and it will be interesting to see if he decides to stay at the club beyond this summer.
Boyata’s situation is rather baffling and the fans have been clearly left out of the loop. If the Belgian is unwilling to play for the club again, it is wise to move him on and bring in a replacement.
Rodgers cannot risk going into the season with an unhappy player who is not committed to the cause.
Here is how the Celtic fans reacted to Sutton’s observation.
The quicker he moves on the better. It’s a distraction we can do without.

he is a fraud and if he thinks playing well in world cup against 2 pub teams and an England 2nd team that didn’t want to actually win that game …then he isn’t FIT to wear the Hoops
…. close the door behind you Dedryck????

Simple, seville interested so doesn’t want to cup tie himself if he gets the move. The guy is a disgrace and should never have been allowed near the 1st team training again.

I would get him out the club asap. Has he caused friction within the squad? Thinks he is better than he is. Get rid!!!!!

Get rid immediately, the fact he’s even still there is laughable.
