Neil Lennon has revealed why key defender Kieran Tierney has been missing for the duration of Celtic’s pre-season and Champions League qualifying campaign so far.

Hoops fans will be hoping Bolingoli is Tierney’s backup option for the 2019-20 season and not his replacement.

Speaking ahead of this afternoon’s friendly against Ligue 1 side Rennes, Lennon explained that Tierney’s struggling through injury and is looking to return to training soon: [Tierney] is still having problems with the pubic injury, so we will need to get to the bottom of that.

Celtic have signed 24-year-old Rapid Wien left-back Boli Bolingoli this summer as back-up for Tierney, and Lennon is happy that it means his first-choice man has a weight off his shoulders: “He now has some competition in Boli [Bolingoli] too, so that means he can step in.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Parkhead this summer, with Arsenal and Napoli both suitors, but he’s still at the club with less than a month of the British transfer window remaining.

We don’t want him to be out for too long but we need to get him right.

That might take the weight off him a bit.
