It is fair to say that Boli Bolingoli’s brief Celtic career has had its share of ups and downs so far. He has had some good and some poor performances for the Hoops.
However, he turned in one of his better performances for Celtic in the Europa League play-off clash against AIK.
The left-back started the game well, with a good pass setting up a Mikey Johnston shot which almost gave Celtic the lead.
Played key role in opening goal
He then played a role in Celtic’s opening goal. His pass set up James Forrest who gave the Hoops the lead.
Celtic supporters on social media were impressed with the recent signing from Rapid Vienna’s performance.
One fan claimed that he was ‘superb’. Another fan thought that he was a ‘different player’.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Bolingoli’s performance:
Superb from Bolingoli

You can see visible improvement in Bolingoli. Him and Jullien need to stay in the team for a bit now.
Willing to accept their early problems over the next couple of months if the manager shows faith in them and has confidence he can improve them. Otherwise what is the point?

Bolingoli has been a different player tonight 👌🏼

Brilliant by Forrest. Well done Bolingoli.

The player continues to have his ups and downs. A mistake in the second-half almost led to an AIK equaliser. However, the Hoops did go on to win the game 2-0, so he can be reasonably happy with his performance against the Swedish champions.
A clean sheet in Europe can’t be argued with
Neil Lennon indicated recently that the player is low on confidence. However, being part of a Celtic side which keeps a clean sheet in Europe can’t be argued with.
Hopefully the player can kick on from this, beginning against Hearts on Sunday.
