Boyata 'with teammates' as transfer-linked defender offers update

The Dutch side's reward is an intriguing clash with Dynamo Kiev, who eliminated Slavia Prague 3-1 on aggregate after goals by Benjamin Verbic and Artem Besedin fired the Ukrainian side to a 2-0 home win over the Czechs.

And while this left Celtic short for their vital Champions League qualifier against AEK Athens, the Northern Irishman has made a major statement.

The agent of Belgium worldwide Dedryck Boyata has hit out at Celtic for turning down transfer offers from Fulham, Olympiakos and Fenerbahce.

In the Instagram video posted late last night, the 27-year-old can be seen getting muscular therapy on his back and legs. His upturn in form earned him a World Cup call-up for Belgium and he played against England in a group stage fixture in the absence of Vincent Kompany.

'Last Thursday, I hurt myself when I slipped in training and I held my leg immediately.

"The physio saw it and examined me right after the session".

"The exams proved I could not play against Hearts and, since then, I'm doing everything I can to be ready as quickly as possible".

The former Liverpool boss is confident that Boyata will not leave Celtic in the summer transfer window.

"Celtic's business model in recent years has been to sign younger players cheap, develop them and sell them on when they go into the last year of contact".

Sutton wrote on Twitter after the match: "The blame game has to stop and it's time for cool heads at Celtic. the manager and board could have handled things better!"

Englishman Roberts, 21, spent the past two-and-a-half seasons on loan at Celtic from City.
