Celtic slam midfielder Boli Bolingoli’s ‘irresponsible stupidity’ after he broke quarantine rules with a secret trip to Spain before playing at Kilmarnock as the Scottish government weigh up shutting down football
Celtic have condemned the behaviour of Boli Bolingoli after the defender travelled to Spain on an unsanctioned trip in breach of Covid-19 quarantine rules.
The Belgian defender’s action could bring the Scottish football season to a halt after he came on as a late substitute in Celtic’s 1-1 draw at Kilmarnock on Sunday.
Now the reigning Scottish Premiership champions have apologised for Bolingoli’s actions, saying ‘it is difficult to imagine a more irresponsible action in current circumstances.’

Bolingoli failed to tell Celtic officials he had visited a high-risk country. Anyone arriving back in the UK from Spain has been required to self-isolate for 14 days since July 26.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon was unaware of the player’s movements when he brought Bolingoli off the bench late on at Rugby Park.
