St Mirren have released a statement after their game with Celtic was postponed and Neil Lennon had to apologise to the entire league because of the Bolingoli disaster.
It is hard to remember a more embarrassing day for Celtic Football Club and the fans. If you somehow don’t know the story yet, Bolingoli decided to break quarantine rules and go to Spain. For just a day!
Who knows what was going through his head? One thing is for sure, his Celtic future is hanging by a thread now. And Celtic’s season has also been thrown into a spiral.
The club’s upcoming two games have been postponed although thankfully UEFA have not taken any action. Cause there were genuine fears that the club would be forced to forfeit their first round qualifier next week as a result of the breach.
The situation is still pretty bad though and very embarrassing for anyone associated with Celtic. The club have been forced to apologise to all the clubs in the league. St Mirren were one of the club’s affected and they released the following statement:
“It is bitterly disappointing that our game tomorrow has been postponed, but it underlines the hugely damaging consequences of even one player disregarding the new rules. We absolutely support the stance of the SFA and the SPFL in this matter.
“These necessary steps are there to protect our game, our players and the very future of every single club in the country.
“The stakes could not be higher and that is why as a club we will be constantly reinforcing the need for personal responsibility and vigilance. The Scottish game simply cannot afford to shoot itself in the foot.”
There is no choice for the club but to listen to whatever comes there way right now. That is the situation the Scottish Champions find themselves in right now. And to be brutally honest, Celtic have to take some action against Bolingoli very soon. Otherwise, this situation will only look worse for the Hoops.
