Boli Bolingoli is getting a bit of a hard time from Celtic fans on Twitter.

Neil Lennon's side eased into the second round of Champions League qualifiers by beating Sarajevo 2-1 on the night in Glasgow, capping a 5-2 aggregate victory.

The new Celtic signing made his competitive debut last week and looked okay, but he made an error on his Parkhead bow tonight.

The visitors threw themselves the slimmest of lifelines on 63 minutes when Benjamin Tatar equalised on the night, a goal that stemmed from the Hoops' left-back playing a risky ball and losing possession.

 

Here's how Celtic fans reacted to the error:

It's worth pointing out that it was only Bolingoli's second game since his £3 million move from Rapid Vienna [The Times] and it's basically pre-season as far as fitness goes.

It would be incredibly harsh to make any sort of concrete assessment about him based on this showing, considering other, more experienced Celtic players - including Scott Brown - also looked off the pace.
