Celtic have made the unsurprising decision to send Uruguayan International Diego Laxalt back to AC Milan at the end of the season. The player has shown some flashes of brilliance but on the whole, he has been a wholly underwhelming signing, along with a number of his fellow arrivals.
According to Tuttosport, Celtic are not interested in pursuing a permanent deal for Laxalt, meaning he will be headed back to the San Siro at end of the season.
The Uruguayan joined on deadline day from Celtic’s Europa League Group H rivals AC Milan and immediately started the 2-0 home defeat to Rangers. His performances to begin with added a much needed pace and steel on the left hand side, something that has been missing since Kieran Tierney left for Arsenal. However, he was criticised for poor performances since November as Greg Taylor won his place in the side again.
Laxalt is reportedly available on a cut price deal but Celtic will not look to make the loan stay a permanent one. Bolingoli will likely return in the summer as he looks to win his place back in the side. Unless the player wants to turn his back on Celtic after being thrown to the wolves over his idiotic COVID-19 breach. However, on the other side of town, such breaches were treated with impunity and the system was wilfully played.
