Agent says Dedryck Boyata 'won't risk future' by playing for Celtic

Celtic's Dedryck Boyata celebrates winning the William Hill Scottish Cup Final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden Park

The 27-year-old is in an apparent deadlock with the Scottish club after returning back from World Cup duty, with Jacques Lichtenstein angry at the Hoops' treatment of his player.

Fulham had a bid turned down before the English transfer deadline last week.

The Belgium centre half is into the final 12 months of his contract at Celtic and is desperate to leave the club, amid interest from a number of sides, including Fenerbahce and Sevilla.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers admits that he would have liked to have had Dedryck Boyata in his squad to face AEK Athens, but the defender has instead been left in Glasgow. He is a player that we would have loved to have here with us.

He spoke to the Belgian website DH.be and said following on the issue: "When I hear I've refused to play since I came back from vacation, it's wrong".

The Rush: Tiger Woods gives us chills and thrills at PGA Championship
Back in the day, that ball dropped for Tiger Woods. "I left pretty much every single putt short on the back nine", said Woods. The final day of the PGA was a thriller and, at one stage, 30 players were within five shots of Koepka in the lead.

A Simunovic error paved the way for Kyle Lafferty's victor as the Scottish champions rested key players at Tynecastle. "And that is my focus, on the players we have".

"Dedryck Boyata should be grateful Celtic gave him the opportunity to play... while he has some good attributes he has been a bombscare at times", Sutton wrote on Twitter.

Requiring a goal in Athens to stand any chance of progressing to the play-off round, though, Rodgers seems set to throw him in at some point in the hope they can yet reverse the damage done by drawing the first leg 1-1.

"Of course it is disappointing, some of the comments, but we will deal with it internally".
