FORMER Celtic player and retired footballer Derk Boerrigter has made an honest but astonishing admission about his time at Celtic.
The player who only made 26 appearances for the club over a three year period was constantly injured, looked disinterested when playing and when he left was regarded as a massive waste of money.
Derk has rubbed salt in the wounds by admitting he was happy to steal a wage from the club when he knew he was pretty much finished.
"They wanted to get rid of me, but I stayed and, I say this honestly, it was because of the money.
The salary was too good to give up, and especially if you see what my club history was."

Derk basically admits he couldn’t believe the wages he was offered by Celtic given his past injury problems.
He came to Celtic known as sicknote, so it was no big surprise when 15 minutes into his debut he went down with an injury.
Somebody at the club, whether it be a scout or Neil Lennon himself certainly did not do their homework before they signed him.
