The 24-year-old played his first game for the Bhoys on Wednesday night - a friendly against Den Bosch. Ronny Deila's men won 2-0 and several fringe players got to show what they are made of, including the likes of Liam Henderson and Tom Rogic.
Boyata also got to make an impression - for the first time in a Celtic shirt.
And the former Manchester City defender is pleased the Hoops could register a win and perform well.

Meanwhile, the ex-Manchester City man also praised his partnership with Virgil van Dijk - and is eyeing a long-term union with the Dutchman.
That comes despite Van Dijk being heavily linked with a Celtic exit this summer. The defender has been linked with a move to Sunderland by the Chronicle, as well as other clubs by other media outlets - although recent noise has quietened.
Van Dijk therefore looks like he could stay with the Bhoys until the Champions League qualifiers at the very least. And former Manchester City centre-back Boyata wants to play more and more games alongside him.
