Ex-Rangers striker Kevin Kyle reckons Boli Bolingoli is finished at Celtic.

Bolingoli was not in the Hoops squad that earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon. And when first-choice left-back Greg Taylor hobbled off injured, Irishman Jonny Hayes filled in, as he has done on numerous occasions this season.

Belgian Bolingoli, meanwhile, played against Clyde in the Scottish Cup on February 9 but had not featured before that game since Celtic's 2-1 defeat to rivals Rangers at Parkhead.

Former Celtic winger Paul Slane, speaking on Open Goal's Keeping the Ball on the Ground podcast, claimed the defender's time was up in Glasgow - and Kyle agreed, because he is too inconsistent. "Boli is done," the ex-Gers, Hearts and Kilmarnock hitman said. "He has come in and got a bit of stick at the beginning, turned it around with a few decent performances but has been found wanting recently whenever he's been called upon.

"Jonny Hayes is that squad player who's been there for, what, 35 years or something? Keeps getting an extended deal every year with an option. 

"The manager knows that, to a point, what he's going to get from Hayes. Whereas with Bolingoli, he hasn't got a scooby doo whether he's going to turn up."
