Dedryck Boyata – Celtic’s weakest link Rangers should take advantage of

Rangers travel to Hampden to take on Celtic on Sunday afternoon looking to secure their place against Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final and the Gers boss Graeme Murty must tell his side to target Celtic’s weak link Dedryck Boyata if they are to secure a win against the Scottish champions.

The Belgium international has come in for criticism from Hoops fans for his performance and let a goal in the recent clash between the two sides at Ibrox as John Windass stole the ball from the central defender before firing beyond Scott Bain.

With Alfredo Morelos not shy about getting into defenders, Gers boss must tell the forward to try frustrate Boyata and look to exploit any mistakes from the defender.

Rangers haven’t won in nine attempts against Celtic which is the longest streak in history and need to be at their very best at Hampden if they are to secure a win over their arch-rivals and end their hopes of winning a historic back-to-back treble.

If the Gers can get in at Boyata and force the Belgian to make one his now characteristic mistakes, Murty’s side need to manage the game better than last time the two met and record a first Old Firm win since triumphing on penalties at the same stage of the Scottish Cup in 2016.
