Boli signs as Right Back mystery deepens

Sharing is caring!

Celtic have added Boli Bolingoli Mbombo to our ranks for 3 million pounds from Rapid Wien in a good bit of business for the Champions, at best he will be back up to Tierney taking Izzy’s spot, at worst he will replace the talismanic left back.

But this still does nothing for our stated aim of signing a Right Back capable of replacing both Gamboa and Lustig.

Lennon himself said that he was looking for 1 or 2 additions to the squad before midnight tomorrow night, we have our first, will we see the elusive Right back we have been chasing finally on our books?

There has been chat of late about Adam Mathews returning to Celtic, whilst he was an amazing servant to Celtic back in the day, his injuries and the calibre of clubs he has been at in the period since he left doesn’t mark him as the player we need.

Now isn’t the time for steps back, it is the time for leaps forward, Celtic still need to invest in the Achilles heel of the squad, that we were able to sign a back up for Tierney in a matter of days but can’t sign a quality Right Back in 3 years is perplexing.

I believe that we will see Gutman retained this season and with good reason, he looks a fine footballer who needs more high quality matches, not a loan deal to the US second tier.

He can play Centre Half and Right back, maybe we have the RB we are all waiting for in the squad right now?

Regardless, welcome to Celtic Boli.
