'Struggling' - Celtic fans react to senior player display in win against St Johnstone

By Danny Wright

Celtic fans on Twitter have praised Dedryck Boyata for his performance against St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon at McDiarmid Park.

Boyata, 26, played all 90 minutes as the Bhoys cruised to a 4-0 win courtesy of goals from Scott Sinclair, Moussa Dembele, a Steven Anderson own goal and Olivier Ntcham.

Centre-back Boyata has had to play a lot of football recently for the Hoops due to Brendan Rodgers’ on-going injury crisis at centre-back with Jozo Simunovic and Erik Sviatchenko out injured.

Although one fan saw the senior player to be “struggling” most of the supporters were thoroughly impressed with his solid performance at the heart of the Celtic defence.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Boyata has been ever-present since returning from an injury blow of his own that saw him miss most of the early parts of the season.

He has made 11 appearances across all competitions since coming back, with varying degrees of success as it seemed he was rushed back from his spell to make up for the lack of options in defence.

Celtic moved four points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table on Saturday with their win against St Johnstone, however that lead can be cut back down to one point by Aberdeen later in the day if they win at Hamilton.
