Celtic are drawn 2-2 with arch-rivals Rangers at half-time in the latest edition of the Old Firm derby at Ibrox on Sunday, and Celtic supporters have been quick to destroy defender Dedryck Boyata, who’s rated at €2m (£1.8m) by Transfermarkt, for his performance in the opening 45 minutes.
The Hopps fell behind in the third minute when Josh Windass found the net for Rangers after Boyata’s poor flick pass was intercepted by Windass, before Tom Rogic hit back with an incredible equaliser.
However, the former Manchester City, who returned to the starting line-up at Ibrox, was then beaten with Alfredo Morelos strength when trying to clear a cross from Declan John, with Daniel Candeias eventually scoring a goal, before Moussa Dembele equalised before the half-time.
Celtic fans were quick to have their say on his performance via social media, and while one among them said: “Boyata is a walking disaster”, another said “get Boyata off he is out of his depth here.”
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Brendan do yourself a favour and the support, a second mistake from Boyata on the ball under no pressure whatsoever and what next, just get him off

We’ve gifted them both goals. Why did Boyata start?! Bad decision. We’ve got enough to beat them, but not when you make mistakes like that.

Apart from his inability to defend and pass balls to teammates, wearing gloves on a beautiful spring afternoon should signal the end for Boyata.

Morelos has got Boyata sewn up. We’re playing with 10 men as long as Rodgers keeps him on.
