BLUNDER Bhoy Boli Bolingoli is heading for the Celtic exit.

French club Amiens SC have made a loan bid for the 25-year-old Belgian left-back who put the club in jeopardy after his unathorised secret trip to Spain and subsequent refusal to obey government 14-day coronavirus quarantine guidlines when he returned.

After training with his team-mates at Lennoxtown, he even made a cameo appearance as a substitute for Greg Taylor in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday.

The Ligue 2 side’s loan offer includes an option to buy at the end of the season, for a fee of £2.3million for the defender who cost £700,000 more when he arrived from Rapid Vienna last summer as a replacement for Kieran Tierney.

The nine-in-a-row champions are looking to offload Bolingoli whose selfith actions meant the cancellation of the Premiership match against St Mirren in midweek and tomorrow’s visit of Aberdeen. The games will now have to be squeezed in the Hoops’ already-congested fixture list which could include two Scottish Cup-ties – a semi-final against the Dons and the target of a place in the Hampden showpiece.

Neil Lennon is already targeting replacements for the No.3 slot and former Scotland international Barry Douglas, the 30-year-old ex-former Dundee United full-back at Leeds United, has been mentioned as a possibility, according to Sky Sports News.

A shift for Bolingoli would look to be the ideal solution for the errant player who is highly unlikely to don the hoops again and still has three years of his contract to run.
