Derk Boerrigter has stunningly accused Celtic for mismanaging an injury that practically ended his career.

The former Ajax winger was signed by then manager Neil Lennon in 2013 for £3million, but suffered a series of injury problems and only played 16 times in three seasons in Glasgow before his contract was paid off.

The player started his Hoops career brightly against Ross County, but he was taken off injured in the first-half of his debut and didn’t seem to recover from night, and he was to go down as a huge waste of money.

As quoted by the Evening Times, the Dutchman hasn’t pulled any punches talking about the injury problems which ended his career.

“My career at Celtic didn’t work out because of silly injuries….things went badly wrong,” he said.

“Celtic then stuffed me full of painkillers, so I could keep playing. I really blame Celtic’s medical staff for that. It was a real shame what happened.”
