DEDRYCK BOYATA has made a sensational return to the Celtic first team for this afternoon’s Premiership encounter against Hamilton Accies at Parkhead.

The Belgian centre-back has not been seen in a Hoops line-up since the Scottish Cup Final win over Motherwell on May 19.

It was believed his career at the champions was over after his recent no-shows, including the crucial European ties in Greece and Lithuania, but he got the nod from Brendan Rodgers to face Accies.

He comes in for Jozo Simunovic, who was injured in the 1-1 draw with FK Suduva on Thursday.

TEAM: Gordon; Lustig, Ajer, Boyata, Tierney; Brown, Rogic; Forrest, McGregor, Griffiths; Dembele.

Subs: Bain, Gamboa, Hayes, Ntcham, Johnston, Sinclair, Christie
