Is fair to say that after recent events Celtic will be looking to offload Bolingoli as soon as possible. Any potential move away from the club for the player would be the best thing for the player, and for Celtic.
Deal looks like a good one for club
On the face of it, the reported deal looks to be a good one for Celtic. A loan move would get the player off the books right away. The reported £2million plus fee if the player impresses seems like a good deal as well.
You would imagine that Bolingoli’s Celtic team-mates aren’t happy with the player as his trip to Spain has led to a lay-off for the Hoops, when the team should be getting ready to take on Aberdeen on Saturday.
Unsurprisingly, the report of Bolingoli’s possible Celtic exit has not gone unnoticed on social media. Plenty of Celtic fans have had their say on the player’s potential exit.
One fan claimed it was the ‘best deal for all concerned’. Other were more forthright in their opinions. One fan said she would give Amines money herself to get Bolingoli out of the club.
Player’s time at club looks to be up
It does seem that Bolingoli’s days at Celtic are numbered. Hopefully he leaves sooner than later, and the Hoops can get on with the goals of winning 10 in a row and qualifying for the Champions League group stages with no distractions.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to the report linking Bolingoli with a move to Amines:
