'Rotten', 'Can leave anytime' - Celtic fans tear mainstay to shreds for performance v Partick

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to tear Dedryck Boyata to shreds for his performance in the 2-1 win against Partick at Firhill Stadium on Wednesday night.
Boyata, 27, has been at the centre of a lot of criticism this season, but did little to alleviate that against the Jags with a truly lacklustre performance.
Brendan Rodgers has made it clear that he would try to strengthen his defence in the January transfer window, but so far, only Marvin Compper has been signed up from RB Leipzig and frustratingly the one-time Germany international has since picked up an injury.
Boyata was picked to start in the back four alongside youngster Kristoffer Ajer, who himself had a poor outing against Partick.
But it was the senior Belgian player who bore the brunt of criticism on Twitter, with one fan saying that he “can leave anytime”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:


Boyata has been a mainstay of Celtic’s first-team this season despite his poor form.
However with Erik Sviatchenko now gone and Jozo Simunovic widely reported to be on the radar of other teams, Rodgers may have had little choice but to start Boyata and Ajer as his central defensive pairing.
Boyata has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring five goals in the process.
In other Celtic news, this club’s president has jetted into the UK in order to try and offload this defensive warrior to the Hoops.
