Brendan Rodgers hints at defender Dedryck Boyata’s possible exit from Celtic FC in January
The Belgian international will be out of contract by the end of the season and is not expected to sign a new contract.
Adopted from: thescottishsun.co.uk
Published: December 4th, 2018
Boyata, 28, was involved in a sickening collision with Aberdeen winger Gary Mackay-Steven at Hampden but battled through by having his head stitched.
For Rodgers that only underlines the Belgian’s commitment to the cause, having previously refused to pull on the jersey.
But the Celtic boss admits there are no guarantees the Belgium international will still be at Parkhead come the end of next month.
Rodgers added: “I was very proud of Dedryck.
“It was a tough summer for him in every way, but it is really satisfying to see how he has got over that, and how he has performed.
“Since he had that episode he has been absolutely brilliant for us. That partnership with Benkovic has been very good. Boyata gives everything to the cause and he is super professional.
“He has played a lot of games now for the No1 ranked team in international football, Belgium.
“That really shows where has come from to where he is at. It is a big credit to him.
“Boyata is in the last year of his deal, but I am quite relaxed on it. He has to look at every option possible.
“He has created a market for himself now because of how he has performed, which is great for him.
“Careers are short. There has been no lack of commitment from Boyata since last summer as you have seen.
“But as a professional player he has every right to wait and see what happens.
“I can assure everyone that doesn’t take away from his commitment to what we’re doing here.
“The next contract may be the last big one of his career as he is 28 now, and he just has to make sure it’s the right one.
“I am relaxed with it because there has been no drop off in mentality. There has never been with him.
“He has been absolutely first class for me. We will just assess the situation as time goes on.
“We know at some point we will lose some of these players. But at the minute we know where it’s at.”
