Celtic fans are not enjoying Brendan Rodgers’ selection of Dedryck Boyata in today’s line-up to face Hamilton at Celtic Park.
The Hoops just announced today’s team as:
— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) August 26, 2018
Boyata is playing his first match of the season so far after first having an extended break on the back of the World Cup, then missing multiple matches due to a mysterious injury that many fans believe is more about his refusal to play for the club.
Brendan Rodgers confirmed again during the week that the player had ruled himself out of the recent trip to face FK Suduva in UEFA Europa League qualifying.
While he may be an improvement on other options in the centre of defence today, many supporters are not appreciating his presence, believing he’s given up the right to play for the club ever again.
It’ll be interesting to see how his afternoon goes and what kind of reception he will get at Celtic Park…
