Celtic fans react on Twitter to centre-back performances v Motherwell

The Bhoys fans were impressed by Dedryck Boyata and Tyler Blackett today.

Celtic went back to the summit in the Scottish Premiership this weekend with a comfortable 1-0 win away to Motherwell. A single goal from Nadir Ciftci proved the difference for The Bhoys who took advantage of Aberdeen's 2-0 defeat to Ross County yesterday to climb to the summit of Scottish football.

It was not vintage Celtic but they certainly deserved their win and put in a solid and sturdy performance on the road with their two central defenders in particular shining.

Tyler Blackett and Dedryck Boyata have had interesting starts to their Celtic careers. The Manchester United loanee has not impressed so far. The youngster, who was a regular for United last term, was not in the first-team picture at Old Trafford this season. With that in mind he was sent to Celtic Park where so far he had not impressed fans.

Boyata has had his good and bad moments but overall the Belgian looks like a good option for the club and he has put in some string defensive performances.

Today saw both playing well and that was recognised by the Celtic fans on Twitter...
