BOLI BOLINGOLI has tonight apologised to the club and its supporters after it has emerged the player broke strict lockdown rules to travel to Spain.
The defender took a trip to the high-risk country recently and didn’t inform the club or isolate for two weeks after his return.
A Celtic source has told SunSport the club is raging with Boli for his actions and are now investigating the matter.
Here is the official line from Celtic as of tonight.
A spokesman said: “Celtic Football Club has taken its response to Covid-19 extremely seriously and we are pleased that, to date, we have recorded no positive tests.
“Our staff have given so much in this area, working tirelessly to ensure that all players and other club personnel are safe, fully aware of their own responsibilities and familiar with all guidance and protocols.
“Safety must always be our priority.
“Clearly, a full investigation will now take place and the Club will take all appropriate action.
“Subsequent to the player’s return he has recorded two negative tests in the past week.”
Boli Bolingoli has also apologised unreservedly already:
“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.”
This could be the final straw for the left-back who came on as a late sub at Rugby Park on Sunday. A Celtic player putting the club and fellow players at risk during such an important season in our history is not something to be taken lightly.
