Dedryck Boyata's agent slams Hoops over breaking ‘promises’

       Tom Rogic is confident Celtic will continue to improve with Brendan Rodgers in charge

The Belgian still has a year of his contract to run and is apparently disappointed the club knocked back a £9million bid from Fulham which would have netted him £50,000-per-week in wages.

"I am absolutely positive he could do both but today he did make changes and it was another thing, along with our form, along with recent performances here against Celtic - positive thoughts for us to go into the game absolutely believing we had a chance of winning". "It would be a great boost for us if he was, give us that extra availability of a really good player". Meeting requests have been refused.

"Celtic are a very big club, but don't behave like one", said Boyata's agent.

"When a club promises a player they will be co-operative in the next transfer window, but does not keep its promise, it seems obvious that they will not keep their promise of extending his contract". And obviously now there have been one or two offers for him. There are a couple of issues medically with him as well and of course at this stage it is hard for players, I respect that.

Before Celtic's 1-0 defeat by Hearts in the Scottish Premiership at Tynecastle yesterday, Boyata's representative Jacques Lichtenstein was quoted as saying: "Dedryck is disappointed because he was made promises that have not been kept". All I have to do now is keep on playing and working hard and we'll see where it takes me. "But he is a player we don't want to lose".

BRENDAN RODGERS has dismissed reports he is ready to quit Celtic following frustrations in the summer transfer market.

Rodgers told BBC Sport after the match against Hearts: "The club were trying to organise a deal, but Dedryck's agent wasn't so keen for him to sign a deal before the World Cup, which you can understand".

With Kristoffer Ajer suspended, Boyata was due for a key role against AEK Athens in the second leg of the Champions League qualifier. "When I play, I try and score goals and I'm just leaving it up to the two clubs". "My concentration is on the players who are fit to play".

'I repeat, he's not disruptive'.
