First Celtic players released for transfer


Three day after the conclusion of the 2014/15 Premier Soccer League season, Bloemfontein Celtic has released their first three players for transfer.

After weeks of speculation it has been confirmed that the Botswanan duo of Joel Mogorosi and Mogogi Gabonamong have both been released by the club.

The two international players contracts at the club have expired and both have been afforded the opportunity to look for new teams.

"It is painful to lose diligent players but again we really welcome their modest manner in accepting the decision taken. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors," said Celtic coach Clinton Larsen.

The third player been released is 21-year-old Malawian international defender Limbikani Mzava who opted not to renew his contract with Phunya Sele Sele.

While the club don’t want the solid defender to leave, be made up his mind earlier after starting most of the season on the bench.

In his short time at the club, Gabonamong made quite an impact and had nothing but good words for the club.

"I must concede that donning the green and white jersey was a revelation. Yes, I have played for so many teams but the culture of this team is extraordinarily amazing.

"We faltered in our last few games but the support and sheer encouragement we got from the supporters and management was unbelievable.

"Clinton is an excellent coach with great tactical acumen and it was great working under him.

"I have some Siwelele addiction and will remain a Celtic supporter even beyond my playing days. Thanks to the Chairman and rest of the team for such sublime support. With the bunch of young players left behind, the team has a excellent future,” Gabonomong concluded.

While the three departures have been confirmed, there is still no news on who may be signed after club chairman Max Tshbalalala revealed that there are couple of big name signings heading to the City of Roses.
