'Hopeless', 'Awful' - Celtic fans slam one player after win v Aberdeen
Celtic fans have take to Twitter to slam defender Dedryck Boyata in the 3-0 win against Aberdeen at Parkhead on Saturday after he almost lead to Gary Mackay-Steven giving opening the scoring for the visitors.
The under-fire Hoops defender allowed the ball to bounce and let in the former Bhoy, but he dragged his shot wide of the post, although it may have taken a deflection.
The mistake didn’t impress Hoops supporters, with one calling him “hopeless”.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter to Boyata’s performance:
Thought Ajer was imperious today at centre half.
Boyata, well, the less said. Erratic would be kind. #CELABE

I think in the last few games Boyata has been a bit suspect

Boyata had a poor start at Celtic, and his days seemed numbered at the club after a dreadful performance against Rangers in the Scottish Cup in 2016.
However, he seemed a player reborn under Brendan Rodgers and was a vital part of the team which clinched the domestic treble last season.

Recent performances have been poor though, as the player seems to have regressed by to his previous performance levels.
As for the game itself, both sides created plenty of chances before the Hoops took the lead in the 40th minute, a Mikael Lustig shot deflected by Dominic Ball into the net.
The Hoops missed plenty of chances to add to their goal in the second-half, before Jonny Hayes scored the Hoops’ second goal – and his first for the Bhoys – in the 69th minute.
Olivier Ntcham then took advantage of a Kenny McLean mistake to make it 3-0.
