'Diabolical', 'Unreliable' - Celtic fans rage as 27-year-old starts v Motherwell
Celtic fans on Twitter are furious that centre-back Dedryck Boyata has kept his place in the Hoops’ starting line-up to face Motherwell at Fir Park.
The 27-year-old was extremely poor in the recent 3-2 victory against Rangers, being at fault for the goal scored by Josh Windass which gave the Gers an early lead in the game and almost gifting another goal to Alfredo Morelos in the second-half.
Despite the errors, Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has kept faith with the Belgian, who starts for the Hoops in the team which was announced on the club’s official Twitter page a short time ago.

The news hasn’t gone down well with fans, many of whom believe that the player should be dropped from the first team, with one supporter claiming that he has ‘got the fear’ about Boyata starting against the Steelmen.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the news that Boyata starts:
Why is Boyata in?? Consistently unreliable.

Disappointed to see Boyata playing again, hope his hamstring goes and he never recovers from it well enough to play professional football again

The Hoops have made two changes from the side which defeated Rangers, with the match-winner Odsonne Edouard replacing the injured Kieran Tierney, and Jack Hendry replacing the suspended Jozo Simunovic.

A win for the Bhoys would see them open up a 14 point lead with a game in hand over their closest challengers Rangers, who lost 1-0 to Kilmarnock on Saturday.
