Celtic currently find themselves leading the race for the Scottish Premiership title, with Rangers and Kilmarnock doing their best to try and keep up.
The Hoops will be looking to secure a fifth successive win in all competitions in tomorrow’s Scottish Premiership clash with St. Johnstone, having enjoyed an inspired run of form recently. And, they recently received a huge boost on the injury front, as according to The Record, Dedryck Boyata will be back in full training next week.
Sadly, the Belgian international has missed Celtic’s last three games with an abductor problem.
It was feared that Dedryck Boyata could miss the entire month of February and the first leg of their Europa League tie with Spanish side Valencia.
However, Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Boyata will be training with the first team from next week.
“The plan, all being well with the last couple of days of rehab, is for him to train with the reserves this weekend. And then he will hopefully train with the first team next week.”
Dedryck Boyata has been a key part of the Hoops’ defence this season, so they’ll be desperate to see him back in the side as soon as possible. And, with a crunch clash with Valencia coming up in the Europa League, Rodgers will need all the defensive firepower he can gather.
