It has been a bad couple of days for Celtic, as they have experienced drama on and off the field.

Celtic will now turn their attention to their Champions League qualifier away against AEK Athens on Tuesday night, with the score level at 1-1 after the first leg in Glasgow.

"Dedryck is disappointed because he was made promises that have not been kept".

Boyata's representative then went on to claim the club had broken promises regarding a potential move away from Scotland, and confirmed the defender would be signing elsewhere in January as his contract is up at the end of the season.

Rodgers revealed that Boyata's agent turned up at the club's Lennoxtown training complex on Friday morning.

Rodgers has overseen a glorious period in the club's history, with Saturday's loss only his 17th in all competitions since taking the reins in 2016, but he has reportedly struggled with the board at Celtic Park over their inability to add players during the off-season. Meeting requests have been refused. Apparently, they want the player to stay and they have publicly stated that they want to extend his contract.except that we never received any concrete extension offer last season despite three meetings with management to discuss it.

The agent, Jacques Lichtenstein, said: "Celtic are a very big club, but don't behave like one". Talks were put off in the summer because Dedryck was going to the World Cup and he wanted to see how it would go. In fact, the Scottish champions are working on a deal to keep him at the club.

Boyata has developed into one of the key players for Celtic since he joined from Manchester City in 2015.
