Hibs midfielder reveals unusual recommendation from Celtic defender


Hibs midfielder Stephane Omeonga admits Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata is helping him look good on the pitch – after recommending a hairdresser.

On loan Genoa playmaker Omeonga came up against his fellow Belgian for the first time in last month’s Scottish Cup defeat to Celtic at Easter Road.

And rather than discuss football after the game, centre-half Boyata passed on details of a barber.

The pair will locks horns again in Sunday’s televised clash at Easter Road and Omeonga hopes Hibs will be a cut above Boyata and the title-chasing Hoops.

He said: “I knew Dedryck Boyata and Oliver Ntcham from my time in Italy but I don’t speak to either before coming here.

“I actually spoke to Dedryck after the Celtic game and he gave me the address to a hairdresser but that’s all the advice I got.”
