Disgraced Celtic defender Bolignoli loaned to Istanbul BB after coronavirus breach

After failing to inform the Scottish champions of a trip to Spain and breaking Covid-19 regulations, the Belgian has gone to Turkey 

Disgraced Celtic full-back Boli Bolingoli has left the Parkhead club to join Istanbul Basaksehir on loan for the duration of the season, the Scottish club have announced. 

The 25-year-old hit the headlines in August after he featured for Neil Lennon’s side days after returning from a secret trip to Spain. By the guidelines laid down by the Scottish Government as well as the SPFL, he should have self-isolated for two weeks.

When details of his trip were made public via the press, it prompted the anger of First Minister Nicolas Sturgeon, who warned football was on a “yellow card” as a result of the Belgian’s behaviour. It also received a scathing response from Celtic boss Neil Lennon.
