Defender Dedryck Boyata wasn’t a very popular man at Celtic just a couple of weeks ago, but supporters can’t get enough of him right now.

Since he’s come back into the team, Brendan Rodgers’ side have looked far more composed at the back, with the Belgian’s presence appear to provide a new solidity that can actually be depended upon.

One shaky moment against Alfredo Morelos aside, he was superb again in today’s derby, showing that he is as committed as anyone in the Hoops team. Imperious in the air and accomplished on the ball, he is undoubtedly the best central defender at the club right now.

His performances have completely vindicated Brendan Rodgers’ controversial decision to bring him back into the first-team squad after the player refused to feature in European qualifiers in an effort to force a move away from the club.

Fans were delighted with him today and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
