Dedryck Boyata has turned his goo-bye to Celtic into an art form by producing a video.

Hertha Berlin recently announced the signing of the defender who moved to Celtic in 2015 in a £1.5m deal from Manchester City.

The video spells out some of his achievements in Glasgow as the club was transformed in the summer of 2016 by the arrival of Brendan Rodgers.

Erik Sviatchenko and Jozo Simunovic were the first pick central defensive pairing during the first half of the Invincible season but from the January onwards Boyata was back in favour, scoring a string of vital goals including a header in the 5-1 win at Ibrox.

After playing for Belgium at the World Cup as understudy to Vincent Kompany Boyata was expected to leave Celtic last summer leading to an awkward stand off after an offer from Fulham was rejected.

Rodgers brought Boyata back into the fold but a torn hamstring in the March derby victory turned out to be his last appearance as a Celtic player.
