Celtic team news: Rodgers confirms Boyata to miss Motherwell trip

Celtic will return to Scottish Premiership action on Wednesday night when they head to Fir Park to face Motherwell.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will be in a buoyant mood as they picked up their seventh successive domestic trophy under his guidance at the weekend in the Scottish League Cup.

However, the Bhoys will want to ensure they get the business done on the pitch as they will not want to see Rangers pull away at the top of the division.


However, their trip to Motherwell could be a testy affair, as the Hoops will be without one of their key men for the game.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, via the club’s official Twitter account, Rodgers revealed that Dedryck Boyata would not be participating in the fixture.


The manager stated that the £1.8million-rated enforcer, as per Transfermarkt, had been ruled out with a hamstring strain.

The Verdict:

Boyata could be a huge blow for Rodgers and Celtic as they make their return to Scottish Premiership action.

The Belgian enforcer has been a star for the Celtic Park outfit during his time at the club and has made the defence extremely solid.

The backline had struggled at times when he was absent in the early stages of the current campaign, so they will be hoping they can deal a lot better without out him on Wednesday than they previously did.
