‘Should Just Release Him’ ‘Maybe Big Ange Will Get Him Playing’ Celtic Fans Debate Future Of 25 Year Old Defender

Celtic left-back Boli Bolingoli will return to Parkhead this summer after Istanbul Basaksehir confirmed that they will not be taken up their option to buy the Belgian.

The 25-year-old moved to Turkey on loan in September following the controversy over an undisclosed trip to Spain, which led to him being handed a substantial fine by the club and a five-game ban by the SFA.

Bolingoli had also struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular during his time with the Hoops and fans on Twitter have been discussing what the future holds for the fullback:

Previous manager Neil Lennon said it would be “very difficult” for Bolingoli to return to the dressing room, but under new head coach Ange Postecoglou, there is a possibility that the defender will be given another chance.

A lot will probably depend on what sort of offers Celtic receive from other clubs for the player. While he did only play 18 matches for Istanbul, it must be pointed out his time with the Super Lig side was hampered by a knee injury, so another team may well consider taking a gamble on him.
