Celtic left-back Boli Bolingoli is unlikely to be given another chance by Ange Postecoglou, according to The Daily Record’s Mark Pirie.
The Lowdown: Left-back woes
Postecoglou has had his issues at left-back in recent weeks. Greg Taylor had to undergo shoulder surgery and Josip Juranovic then went off with a knock against Dundee United after switching over to left-back.
Bolingoli was selected in a 1-0 defeat to Livingston last month but hasn’t been seen since, and it doesn’t look as if he’ll be getting the call from Postecoglou anytime soon.
Should Bolingoli be given another chance at Celtic?
Yes, we need him!
No, get rid!
The Latest: Pirie’s claim
Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock played down rumours linking the Irishman with a move to the Riverside Stadium.
At the end of the report, Pirie looked at the Hoops’ left-back ranks, and when it came to Bolingoli, claimed it is ‘unlikely’ he’ll be handed another chance under Postecoglou.
The Verdict: January exit needed…
With Bolingoli seemingly not in Postecoglou’s plans, it is vital the Hoops move him on in the New Year.
It wouldn’t make sense to keep the 26-year-old at Parkhead on a £780,000-a-year salary if he isn’t going to be used.
Freeing up his wages could perhaps then allow Postecoglou to bring in reinforcements, so a loan or permanent exit should be explored.
