Cya later you rat bag *
They'll be back in Bundesliga 2 before long. Especially if they're pinning their hopes on this fruitcake.
Can imagine in his heads its a year there and then onto leverkusen/gladbach
Celtic manager Neil Lennon has played down reports that Dedryck Boyata has agreed to join Hertha Berlin in the summer.
It was suggested on Saturday in the German media that the Bundesliga club are confident of agreeing terms with Boyata on a pre-contract.
The Belgian centre-back is set to become a free agent at the end of the season and it had seemed previously that Lennon was resigned to losing him.
After Boyata limped out of last weekend's Old Firm match, the Parkhead boss admitted that the 28-year-old may have played his last game for Celtic.
That stance appeared to have changed, though, with Lennon revealing that the club have not yet given up hope of extending the player's stay beyond the summer.
Speaking after his side's goalless home draw with Livingston, Lennon said: 'I'm not aware of that (a deal being agreed with Hertha). Dedryck was here at the game today.
'I wouldn't be surprised if there is interest in him but we are still hopeful that we can persuade him to stay, which would be great for everyone.
Naw Neil it wouldn’t be great for everyone the * a bombscare and needs tae * right off.
Sign him and sell him !
He should have been sold back in August regardless of the qualifiers etc.
This was always going to happen so I couldn't care less tbh.
Imagine Lewandowski getting at him
That’s rape territory.
If Lenny's soundbites about hoping to keep this * on are true, then he's seriously misjudged the mood of the support!
I'm not interested in any cute deals where the player signs on, gets sold in the first transfer window, and the funds are split - I want him told NOW not to bother coming back to the club!
Hertha Berlin already have five centre backs. For three defensive positions. Think it's the sort of mediocre deal he should avoid.
No one at the club is gonna confirm it or that he's desperate to get away after the fiasco at the start of the season, are they..
He's long gone..
Hope we rush him back for ibrox. Play him half fit and keep playing the ball to him for one last farewell to Rodgers reign.
DEDRYCK BOYATA is set to rake in £2million a year by joining Hertha Berlin.
The Bundesliga side are edging closer to a Bosman deal for the Celtic defender.
SunSport understands the wealthy Germans will sanction a bumper contract if Boyata joins them on a free.
He is expected to command a weekly wage of around £40,000 — plus a hefty signing-on fee.
Those figures would represent a massive increase on the deal he agreed when he joined Celtic from Manchester City in 2015.
It has also emerged Hertha were willing to pay around £4.5m to land Boyata LAST summer.
But Celtic refused to entertain any bids.
Hertha have continued to monitor Boyata’s situation and, with no fee required, can now offer better personal terms.
The Belgium defender would become one of the club’s highest earners, alongside former Chelsea star Salomon Kalou.
Hertha are confident they have got their man and hope to finalise the deal for the 28-year-old in the coming weeks.
Neil Lennon is keen to keep Boyata at Parkhead but that looks doomed.
His Celtic contract talks broke down after a bitter dispute last summer and he missed the Champions League qualifier with AEK in controversial circumstances.
Hoops fans turned on Boyata after that but Celts still refused to sell him.
Boyata, who is currently injured, regained his place in the side but now looks to have played his last game for the club.
Only six defeats in the league. What a record that is.
Only 5 more league games to have the fear of * in us when he plays.
Actually surprised it's only 6, how many draws?

the only thing we will get out this move is some angry mouthy germans on here in six months time , make fekkin sure there is no return clause !
I rate him and like him but he won't really be a miss, he always missed about 20 games a season with injury and he never really played in the CL qualifiers in the 4 seasons he was here, he was always injured - the Last CL qualifying match he played for us was in 2015 so he's not really going to hold us back.
Mental really that of the 25 European games he played for us 18 were in the Group Stage/Knockout Rounds and only 7 were Qualifiers.
He missed 18 out of 24 CL Qualifiers.
This season and the last 2 seasons we'll have had 183 games and he only played in 93 of them.
If he was this fantastic player Rodgers thought he was we would have many large teams knocking at our door. It cannot be that every decent club passed on him even if he is free
The fact he is a belgian international means nothing. Even the best Brazil and Argentina sides had one or two donkeys that wouldnt be good enough for Celtic
