At this stage of the season, there is probably no need to document the monumental task that some Celtic manager is going to face in the summer when it comes to the Celtic back four.
Neil Lennon offered some hope about working a deal with Dedryck Boyata as rumours of interest and offers start pouring in. Lennon said post-match after Livingston at the weekend that he was still hopeful of working something out with the Belgian. John Hartson knows the game is up with Boyata and that Lennon cannot compete with the 100k a week wages in the Bundesliga.
Using his space in the Evening Times Hartson said:
“But I would be very surprised indeed if the Belgian centre half stays in Glasgow. And I am sure Neil knows the player is likely to depart too. I just don’t think the Parkhead club can afford to keep him.”
