and are they going to accept that it's okay to field an  ineligible player and put the safety of other players at risk?

They didn’t field an ineligible player, pretty sure he’ll be registered in their squad.

celtic Football Club unreservedly condemns and apologises for the behaviour of the player Boli Bolingoli in travelling to Spain without informing the club and in failing to observe quarantine restrictions.

It is difficult to imagine a more irresponsible action in current circumstances and we find it beyond explanation. The Club will take immediate action through our own disciplinary procedures.

celtic are in touch with every SPFL club today, and with all relevant authorities, to apologise for the fact that one of our employees has created so much additional difficulty through his actions.

All of our playing and backroom staff have been tested twice for Covid-19 since this incident and all, including the player in question, have tested negative. While this comes as a relief to all concerned, it in no way diminishes the seriousness or stupidity of the player’s actions.

Since the Covid -19 crisis began, we have had a safe and healthy squad of players, recording not one positive test. As a club, we have worked tirelessly to ensure a sustained, safe environment for all.   

We have led the way in working with the football authorities and Scottish Government to establish the most rigorous, effective protocols and working practices, which ultimately led to the resumption of football. We could have done no more in this area.

It is a matter of the deepest regret to us that the behaviour of one individual has jeopardised that reputation and reflected discredit on football more generally.

Guaranteed that they've only issued that statement because they now know a league-wide 'pause' is about to hit everyone. More sponsor/tv fines ahoy, share the misery!

If that is the case and it magically doesn't impact their CL qualifier, their years of cherry picking people for the right places has just paid off massively for them.

No mention of whether he was tested pre-match...

Was he not made to be ineligible by going to Spain and then not isolating for 14 days on his return?  cfc then fielded the player,  breaching the agreement with Scottish government and the SPFL/SFA bubble for players safety.

Yes I know all of that. Not sure if it would come under the bracket of ineligible player. Would be good if it did.

The "It's not us it's him" defence....whilst crawling up everybody's arse and reminding us all how great they are.

Fuckin mingers.

Yup. Predictable. They don't miss BB. Thrown under the bus like clockwork (which he deserves). No mention of Griffiths though.

They think if they keep saying they're great at this, that and the other people will believe them!

How many off field scandals do they have? How many investigations? How many UEFA fines?

They couldn't have done anymore. Haha!

Is the SPFL/SFA football bubble an actual thing?

They must have forgot about the racist Griffiths

Yeah that's right. All test results need to be submitted 48 hours before KO. This is where the real issue is for me. Player going is a monumental fuck up but celtic NEED to confirm he was tested along with the rest of the squad and submitted on time.

Chances are they tested everyone before being given 2 days off.

If they didn't submit on time. What will happen next ?

Assuming he wasn’t, that means either celtic have fraudulently submitted a test or the SPFL have failed to enforce their own rules, presumably?
