Celtic fans are annoyed at Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo’s performance in Wednesday’s Cluj match, particularly as it came just as it was announced that Kieran Tierney was nearing the Parkhead exit door.
The left-back picked up a booking in the 1-1 draw in Romania as he completed 90 minutes for only the fourth time in his Celtic career. A James Forrest strike gave Neil Lennon’s men the valuable away goal after Mario Rondon had given Cluj an early lead.
Bolingoli-Mbombo was only brought to the club at the beginning of last month, but for a price tag of £3m the fans expect him to deliver right away.
With Tierney now joining Arsenal, the Belgian becomes the only first-team left-back at the club and this has got the supporters worried.
Some fans are furious that the £3m man is the only option in such an important position, while others claim they have known he isn’t good enough “since day one”.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter about Bolingoli-Mbombo’s night to forget…
Who tweeted saying they are happy with Boli as our first choice left back? Show yourself.
