    DEDRYCK BOYATA is set to make a dramatic return for Celtic’s festive double-header with Aberdeen and Rangers.

    The Belgian defender is back in training after missing four games with a hamstring injury.

    Boss Brendan Rodgers, whose side landed Valencia in the Europa League last 32, revealed Boyata should be fit for Pittodrie and Ibrox next week.

    He said: “Dedryck has a good chance for the Aberdeen and Rangers games — absolutely. Thankfully, his injury was only a slight, grade-one hamstring.

    “He’s moving well outside, so we will see where he is at.

    “He’s a big player for us. You see the solidity he gives. I like real pace in one of my centre-halves and he gives you that.

    “He lets you squeeze your line and be nice and compact as a team.

    “When he doesn’t play, we really miss him — but he will be back soon.”

    If that’s true that he’s back for the Aberdeen and Rangers games then we’ll sort it we are sorted

    Can't see sevco causing a Lustig--Benkovic--Boyata--Tierney backline a single problem.

    I still think he is replaceable. The fact is hendry and simunovic are both *. Lustig also started the season badly but perked up and recently out again.

    Hebert Hendry, the * version of Benkovic and Lustig are all complete duds and should all three play in a game it’s like playing with only 8 players

    I’d argue playing with only 7 if Sinclair starts, as he’s just toilet

    6.5 if you want My feelings on Gordon hahaha

    You don't do your argument any good by lumping Lustig in with Hendry and Simunovic et al. Just makes you look like you don't have a clue about anything.

    Is Lustig the player he was? No. Should we be looking to upgrade the RB position? Definitely. Is he the weakest link when everyone is fit? Maybe (it's between him and Gordon). Is he utter *? Absolutely not.

    Lustig is not *. Motherwell a couple weeks ago, Thursday night and most lately Sunday show that’s not the case.

    Despite him not being what he once was, he’s still an important player for us.

    Lustig has a few howlers in him.

    Sorry but Lustig is still good. Over the past 2 months he has been really good.
    Just because more people think it does not mean it is correct.

    I was saying he was finished earlier in the season but he’s proved me wrong again, he stepped up his game as soon as he got the armband with Broony injured and has played his best football for a long time.

    Yeh defo ,I'm hating this trend where we are so quick to retire or scrap players over the course of a few bad games , lustig just played a world cup and done pretty well ,am sure br will know when he cant make the starting 11 .
    Now we have the broony saga that he's finished again ,that happened 3 yrs ago and since has been our best player , so he is blamed for our struggle to get goals earlier before injury .
    The reason we got goals in his absence was down to many things ,none relating to his abilities or lack of ,and is still good for 2years yet .

    Let me elaborate

    Against any winger or attacker of note, Lustig is putty in their hands

    He’s very boring to watch - just passes it back all the time or side to side

    He’s not mobile enough

    His positioning isn’t good

    How he got captain over KT is anyone’s guess

    This isn't the Lustig thread, but what I will say if we're satisfied a club like Hibs can target one of our players and milk it for all it's worth, we seriously need to reassess our standing in the world of football.

    Which brings us back to the conundrum that is Boyata. Not sure if I want him on a new deal or not, but Christ am I glad he's coming back soon.

    Lustig is vice captain because his a highly influential member of the squad, a leader, loves Celtic and obviously the other players look up to him.

    I get the feeling you don’t really watch much of our games but just take peoples opinions off forums and twist them for your own.
