FORMER Celtic star Chris Sutton has urged Neil Lennon to give bungling Boli Bolingoli the boot.

The Belgian left-back is at the centre of a club investigation after travelling to Spain before featuring in the Hoops’ 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday.

Bolingoli broke strict UK and Scottish Government quarantine rules with the secret trip which has left manager Lennon fuming.

Sutton tweeted: “There should be no way back for Bolingoli at Celtic now. If he knowingly went to Spain before the Kilmarnock game and broke quarantine rules he showed he really doesn’t give a sh## about his team-mates, the manager and the support… Celtic should get rid immediately.”

The defender, who cost £3million when he arrived from Vienna Rapid in July last year, came on for Greg Taylor near the end of the stalemate in Ayrshire.

He made 18 appearances last season as the champions looked for a replacement for £25million Kieran Tierney.

Lennon brought in Taylor in a £2.25million switch from Kilmarnock on the September 2 deadline day and also utilised versatile Jonny Hayes in the No.3 berth.

There must now be a huge question mark over Bolingoli’s future at Parkhead.

He has made an abject apology, as CQN reported earlier today, saying: “I have made a huge mistake.

“I want to apologise to my manager, my team-mates, the supporters, everyone at Celtic and so many others for letting them down so badly.

“I am guilty of a major error of judgement. I know what I did was wrong and I know that I must now deal with the consequences.”
