Boli Bolingoli has stepped up his return from injury after nearly four months out injured with a knee problem. The Belgian, who is on loan with Istanbul Basaksehir, will be hoping to get himself up to speed ahead of pre-season under a new Celtic manager.

The player signed from Rapid Vienna in the Summer of 2019 for £2.5m. The player was offloaded after breaking COVID-19 rules. Bolingoli decided to go to Spain for one night and failed to quarantine when he returned. Celtic may look to bring the fullback back into the fold next season if they think the player could be an improvement upon Diego Laxalt, who is on loan from AC Milan.

Celtic have been unable to replace Kieran Tierney since he left the club. Bolingoli was supposed to be replacement but Jonny Hayes, Greg Taylor and Diego Laxalt have all featured in the role but no-one has managed to hold down the jersey.

However, in retrospect, Bolingoli could feel aggrieved at the way that he has been treated in Scotland given that some clubs have acted with impunity.
