Dedryck Boyata will have worried Celtic fans on Instagram after the defender posted two videos of his toe receiving treatment following the Hoops' excellent win over RedBull Leipzig.

The 27-year-old starred for Celtic as they earned a narrow 2-1 win over Leipzig at Parkhead, saving their chances of qualifying for the knockout stage of the Europa League.

 

Kieran Tierney gave Celtic the lead, before Jean-Kevin Augustin equalised in the 78th minute. But just a minute later Ryan Christie's excellent cross was converted by Odsonne Edouard.

Boyata was solid at the back but his Instagram post after the match will be a concern for Celtic fans, as he uploaded videos of himself receiving treatment on a possible injured toe.

The defender is one of the first names on the Celtic team sheet despite his actions earlier on in the season, which saw him claim injury prior to Celtic's clash against AEK Athens in Greece. Brendan Rodgers stated after the match he was fit.

The Belgium international was the centre of intense speculation and it is believed that he chose not to play against AEK in order to push through a move. His future at Celtic remains in the balance, with his contract expiring next summer.

It also remains to be seen if he will be fit for Sunday's trip to Livingston, with a win potentially enough to see Celtic return to the top of the Scottish Premiership. That will happen, if Hearts fail to beat Kilmarnock at Tynecastle on Saturday.
