'Take the money and run': Celtic fans react to Lazio's Boyata links

Scottish Premiership giants Celtic could reportedly sell Dedryck Boyata with Serie A giants Lazio allegedly expressing an interest.

Celtic supporters were left divided when Brendan Rodgers decided to sell Erik Sviatchenko to FC Midtjylland recently.

The Danish defender had fallen out of favour at Parkhead, failing to make a single league start before joining the current Ekstraklasa champions on loan in the January transfer window. But Sviatchenko is a talented defender with plenty of potential and letting him go could very quickly look like a mistake.

But it seems that reports suggesting Dedryck Boyata could follow him out the door have been greeted with a far more universal response.

Boyata has been a scapegoat among some sections of the Bhoys support for a number of months now; the criticism perhaps stemming from some dreadful performances in the Champions League group stage during which Celtic were humiliated by both PSG and Bayern Munich.

Boyata made a series of mistakes that would not look out of place on a Sunday league pitch.

But, according to Radio Sei, Serie A giants Lazio are still interested in taking the former Manchester City defender away from Glasgow this summer with just one year remaining on his deal.

And it seems that Celtic supporters would only be too happy to see Boyata become the latest victom of Celtic’s summer cull.
