Celtic are currently going through a phase that the club have not had to go through for some time and things do not look to be getting any better for them.
According to the former striker, who had two spells at Old Firm rivals Rangers, he believes Olivier Ntcham and Dedryck Boyata are both keen to leave Celtic Park.
Both players were subject to offers from some of Europe’s biggest sides over the summer, however, the duo remained with the Hoops for the beginning of the current campaign.
However, Boyd reckons that their dip in form is a sign of the stars desire to leave the Glasgow outfit as soon as possible.
Speaking about Ntcham, he said: “When a club wants to pay £14m for him, that guy’s wages are going through the roof when he goes there. He wants to go. Boyata, the exact same.
“Ntcham was excellent up to the first four games. Since the transfer window shut and Moussa Dembele has gone, he looks a shadow of what he was.”
Celtic fans certainly will not take a liking to what a former Rangers man has to say about their players and it will not help that his opinion could come across a little far-fetched.
The whole team have not been playing well under Brendan Rodgers so far this season, so it would be unfair to blame the duo that had attracted significant interest in the summer.
Players understandably have a drop in form for a host of reasons, although it is unlikely that they will be looking to play badly to try and force a move away from Celtic Park at the next available opportunity.
