Agent says Dedryck Boyata 'won't risk future' by playing for Celtic

Celtic's Dedryck Boyata celebrates winning the William Hill Scottish Cup Final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden Park

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.

Celtic's Odsonne Edouard and Hearts' John Souttar compete for the ball.

"Dedryck is disappointed because he was made promises that have not been kept".

Rodgers and the Celtic players will fly out today for Greece as they prepare for the crucial Champions League qualifier against AEK Athens on Tuesday. "That's the proper Hearts that I used to play against eight-nine years ago", he told BBC Scotland. It is hard for a player. "My concentration is on the players who are fit to play".

It has been a awful couple of days for Celtic, as they have experienced drama on and off the field. "But he is not disruptive".

An unbridgeable schism between Celtic and Dedryck Boyata appeared to open yesterday after the player's agent effectively stated the defender would not make himself available for the club as he attempted to force a move away from the Scottish champions. I'm not sure. It is hard. The club have been in negotiation with Dedryck's agent from past year. His upturn in form earned him a World Cup call up for Belgium and he played against England in a group stage fixture in the absence of Vincent Kompany. "It was a fantastic strike, but he has so much magic in him - it's just a question of getting it out", Canning said.

Hearts' Steven Naismith and Celtic Captain Scott Brown battle for possession. 'The day before the game, the training ground is closed.

All I want is for us to improve every aspect of the club. I have a meeting with players at 10.30 and I said I couldn't meet him before but I would after I had done my work.

'Obviously, when I came back after training, he wasn't there. That's where it is at.

"That's where it's at, but he is a player we don't want to lose".

The Scottish champions suffered a surprise 1-0 loss in their second game of the Scottish Premier League season to Hearts, thanks to Kyle Lafferty's goal, as they look to secure a third consecutive domestic treble. "One mistake cost us". Hearts have spent £1m on a new hybrid pitch since the end of the season, although manager Craig Levein acknowledged the playing surface was still "a bit long" prior to this weekend's game.

"And I'd read somewhere else about walking away".
