    Boyata saying he would have stayed had he got what he wanted and if only people knew the truth. Oh to be a fly on the wall.

    Sounds like he would have stayed if we'd given him the contract he wanted. If a mid-table German side could match his demands surely we could have?

    His agent said they weren’t even going to sit down for talks at one point. If it had something to do with Rodgers then maybe once Rodgers left, negotiations could have started. Plus, there were rumours of Boyata wanting to leave Celtic at the end of last season, as early as January 2018.

    He might be telling the truth, but either way I’m glad to see the back of him.

    I've been a big critic of Boyata but his game has come on an awful lot since his first year with us. Not sure I'm happy to be losing arguably our best CB for free when we're going into next season with only really Ajer and Jozo to call upon.

    The more I think about the situation I think the Rat * him over.

    Look at the players reactions when he scored against Hamilton...

    Yeah I can understand that, I’d have liked a fee for him too. Poor sequence of events for us.

    If reports are true he's getting 40k per week there. If we were to be paying someone that sort of money I'd rather it was on someone better than him.

    Don't say that, I spent 2/3 of the season calling him a * and hoping he never played for us again.

    But then there's Dembele. It does seem like Rodgers is at least not 100% blameless in all this. Hard to know how true these rumours about Fullham were; but if it really was a £9 million mistake by Rodgers, that's a huge amount of money.

    Honestly he’s been a big part of this season, even if it was, he’s played his part in a potential treble treble

    I don't know if Rodgers did him wrong. I wouldn't put it past him, but in any case, he's not a good fit for a team who wants to build from the back. Panics under pressure. Should have been sold at the time.

    Obviously we don't know the details, but knowing what we now know about Rodgers' loyalty, I've no reason to doubt Dembele/Boyata.

    He's did well enough here, and you don't get a call up to one of the best National teams in Europe if you're no good.

    I wish him well.

    Performance wise he's been absolutely outstanding. I never denied that. My only problem was that he's a * that refused to play our biggest game of the season.

    Except that we only have Rodgers word for that and now that word doesn't seem so reliable. And now he is pretty blatantly insinuating that Rodgers * him over in the summer. So maybe he isn't a * after all. Or maybe he still is.

    I genuinely don't know what to think anymore. I'd like to believe him TBH. Hopefully it all comes out eventually.
