The defender is free to leave the club this summer when his contract expires, and it looks as though he might be already trying to sort out where he’s going to go.

Apparently he was with Omar Elabdellaoui who plays for Olympiacos, but the club have denied any knowledge of Boyata being in Greece and have played down reports of interest.

Pre-season confirmed

Celtic have announced they will tour Austria in pre-season.

 

The Bhoys will play eastern Austrian side SC Pinkafeld on June 26 and then Wiener Sport-Club days later.

Finally, they will take on St Gallen at the Stadion Kybunpark on July 2, before gearing up for the Champions League qualifiers.

Special McGregor

Kieran Tierney has branded James Forrest ‘a special player’, and says that he and his teammates are scared to come up against him in training (The Daily Record).

Celtic fans have been treated to Forrest’s best football this season, with the Scot having hit 17 goals and 20 assists in all competitions.

It turns out he is just as brilliant in training according to teammate Tierney. He said: “He is one of the best players I have ever played with. I hate playing against him in training because he’s just so difficult to go up against.

“I am so pleased for him. He’s a hard worker, keeps his head down and doesn’t like the headlines. He’s a special player.”
