Bloemfontein Celtic were bundled out of the CAF Confederation Cup after losing 5-0 on aggregate to Nigerian outfit Rivers United on Saturday evening.
The second leg was scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 6 January but was postponed after new Covid-19 restrictions did not allow Celtic to travel to Nigeria.
The DStv Premiership outfit entered the second leg trailing the Nigerian outfit by two goals, but they once again made wholesale changes for the encounter as they did in the previous round.
However, United signalled their intent early on when Godwin Aguda opened the scoring in the first half, making it 3-0 on aggregate for the hosts.
Celtic's fate was virtually sealed just before the halftime break when Aguda bagged his second goal of the game to hand the Nigerian outfit a comfortable lead.
The Nigerian top flight outfit sealed the victory and a spot in the next round thanks to Fortune Omoniwari's strike five minutes after the halftime break.
Rivers will now lock horns with fellow Nigerian Premier League outfit Enyimba in the next round.
