Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has always been a fan of centre-back Dedryck Boyata, as he was the manager who rehabilitated his Hoops career.

But the Hoops boss seems to have finally lost patience with the 27-year-old senior player after a poor performance against Ross County.

The Belgian, who has been prone to make an error or two in his time with the Hoops, turned in an anxious performance against the league’s bottom side, and was replaced at half-time by Jack Hendry, even though he wasn’t injured.

It is unlike the Hoops boss to lose patience with a player he kept faith in after a poor display in the recent 3-2 win over Rangers, so he must have been really angry with the display put in by Boyata.

With only a year left on his contract with the Bhoys come the end of the season, there has to been some doubts about his long-term future with the Hoops.

Perhaps the only thing that can save his Hoops career is the fact that Hendry is ineligible for the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers, which may give Boyata a reprieve in the team.

If he is able to get his act together then Boyata could be an asset for the Hoops in the match, but if he continues in the poor form which his blighted his return to the side after injury, then his days in Glasgow could well be coming to an end.
