Neil Lennon said in his post-match interview today that he has not given up hope of keeping defender Dedryck Boyata at Celtic Park despite reports linking him with Hertha Berlin earlier today. Most Celtic fans have probably given up on the idea that Boyata would be staying at Paradise after the summer.

Most will welcome the fact that the club is battling to change the player’s mind. His Celtic career seemed over last summer when it was rumoured he refused to play in a Champions League qualifier after the board refused to sell him.

The interim manager said Boyata deciding to stay would be “great for everyone”.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there is interest in him, but we are still hopeful that we can persuade him to stay,”

The manager was speaking after recording his second scoreless draw at Celtic Park, something the packed home support are not accustomed to in domestic competition. Despite the draw, Lennon said he was “pleased with the overall performance but not the scoreline”


  1. A good manger would only be found wanting ,the once ,when playing 11 men behind the ball. as he would first stop the side way passing, and definitely ban wing back play .all attacks thought the middle head on if they will no come out they can’t hurt you when you are in there box.

  2. Get feckin deadwood te feck
    Time and time again he has shown he just doesn’t give a flying feck about us
    Hopefully we won’t see him or his like again
    Hail Hail
