Celtic

Time up for Boyata

2nd April 2019, 09:08 by Neil Foster

Dedryck Boyata has possibly played his last game for Celtic, according to interim boss Neil Lennon.

Boyata, 28, is coming towards the end of his four-year deal with the Glasgow giants and it seems as though he unlikely to stay at Parkhead.

The Belgium international has made 90 Scottish Premiership appearances since moving to the club from Manchester City in 2015, scoring 12 goals, but is unlikely to be seen in a Hoops shirt again.

He played for the Bhoys in Sunday's 2-1 Old Firm victory over Rangers but was forced from the pitch on 74 minutes due to a hamstring problem, leaving the hosts with 10 men as all substitutes had been used.

Boyata was criticised at the time for seemingly abandoning his side and, when asked if it could all be over for the defender, Lennon concurred.

"Possibly," he said. "He felt it rip. He played on having felt a twinge and then he felt a rip five minutes later. Again, we'll have to wait and see but it's a blow because he's been absolutely brilliant."
