'Only Celtic player worth talking about' - Fans rave about one player after Bayern Munich loss
By Danny Wright
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to rave about defender Dedryck Boyata after what was a poor 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
Boyata, 26, played all 90 minutes in what was a frustrating night for Brendan Rodgers’ side, which leaves them with a lot of work to do in the coming weeks should they want to qualify for the knock-out rounds of the Champions League after Christmas.
It was always going to be a tough ask of Celtic to provide the goods against what is a very tough-to-beat Bayern side, who look to have had their belief reinstilled in them after Jupp Heynckes replaced Carlo Ancelotti as manager.
Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich and Mats Hummels were all on the scoresheet and little could be done by Boyata and his defensive team-mates to keep the German titans at bay.
Although there were poor performances across the pitch from the Hoops contingent, Boyata earned a lot of praise from the supporters for his display.

I think Gordon, Roberts and maybe Boyata are the only players that are getting near pass marks at the minute.

Belgian centre-back Boyata has made six appearances for the Bhoys across all competitions this season after coming back from a knee injury which ruled him out of a good chunk of the early fixtures of the campaign.
