BOLINGOLI is set to make his Celtic training return after Neil Lennon confirmed that the club had conferred upon the Belgian the highest possible punishment available to them after his breaching of Coronavirus protocols. Bolingoli decided to go to Spain for one night and failed to quarantine when he returned, putting the whole of Scottish football at risk of being shut down again.
However, Neil Lennon has confirmed that he will be back to training in the next week while his representatives look to seal a move away from the club. As reported by the Scottish Sun, Lennon denied any concrete interest in the player but said that as the internal investigation had concluded, he expected to see the player at Lennoxtown.
“He has been sanctioned with the maximum disciplinary action the club can take, so that’s the end of it now.
“He’s not trained as of yet but we’ll expect to see him maybe in the next week or so.”
Roma denied interest in the 25-year-old during the week but Bolingoli’s agent is trying to seal a move away from the Scottish Champions as it is unlikely that the manager will ever play him again.
“I am not aware of any contract from clubs about him. I think his representatives are looking at options for him elsewhere.”
As a result of his actions, Celtic were forced to have two games postponed meaning they were two games short of match fitness for the game against Ferencvaros. It is unlikely that he will play for the club again and hopefully Celtic can recoup some of the £2.5m they paid Rapid Vienna for the player.
