Celtic fans were not impressed by the performance of defender Dedryck Boyata during Sunday’s match at home to rivals Rangers.
The Hoops emerged as 2-1 winners of the derby battle, but not before a serious scare from the visitors.
Odsonne Edouard fired the champions-elect ahead in the first half, with the visitors subsequently going down to ten men.
They rallied in the second half though and Ryan Kent equalised when he turned Boyata inside out before slotting the ball past Scott Bain.
Celtic then had to dig deep to find the win and eventually netted the winner after James Forrest received Edouard’s past and fired home.
Boyata’s contract is up at the end of the season and many feel it is not worthwhile playing him in the tail-end of the season, even if he is fit for upcoming matches after going off injured.
That injury meant Celtic had to play the closing portion of the game with ten men, putting the result against Steven Gerrard’s side at serious risk.
Fans were fuming with him and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Boyata should never put a Celtic shirt on again

Boyata should never get a jersey again.
