Celtic fans have annihilated Dedryck Boyata for his shocking performance in the 2-1 defeat Hibernian at Easter Road on Saturday afternoon.

Boyata, 27, has attracted widespread criticism this season with many supporters baffled by Brendan Rodgers’ insistence on playing the former Manchester City week in, week out.

The Hoops have a lot of central defensive options after Rodgers signed Jack Hendry and Marvin Compper in January, yet it appears to be the same old faces still featuring.

The Bhoys faithful really lost their rag with Boyata on Saturday though with a lot of people taking aim at the Belgian for his role in Hibernian going a goal up through Jamie Maclaren in the 24th minute.

One angry fan claimed that the centre-back was “out of his depth” at Easter Road.

Boyata has made 35 appearances in all competitions for Celtic this season and has managed to stay relatively injury-free despite missing most of the pre-season with an issue with his knee.

Rodgers really struggled to name two centre-backs in his side during the first few months of the campaign and that prompted him to take to the transfer market in January and buy Hendry and Compper.

Hendry has been a regular, but Compper has played just once due to injuries.

In other Celtic news, the Hoops are likely to sign this Premier League playmaker in the summer, but he is a lifelong Rangers fan.
