With Bloemfontein Celtic having evidently been experiencing differences with the team’s supporters for some time, it is seemingly becoming clear that the management of the club is bowing down to accept defeat.
Celtic chairman, Max Tshabalala, shocked the local football fraternity with the announcement that he is selling the club, after according to his sentiments, he was told by the fans that they hate him and want him gone.
Tshabalala has confirmed that there have been two offers on the table for the club, though he also admitted that offers from within Mangaung would be first preference.
The Siya crew was recently told by Celtic’s prominent supporter, Botha Msila, that among other grievances between the parties, the supporters have been disgruntled with the club’s decision of suspending their meetings with them.
Celtic usually engage their supporters in the meetings to discuss matters relating to the club.
From preventing their own players from leaving the stadium after the game against Maritzburg United to threatening boycott games, the supporters have also been involved in causing trouble at Orlando Stadium, during and after their game with Orlando Pirates last weekend.
Following the announcement about selling the club, Celtic have now lined up a meeting with the supporters in what seems to be bowing to pressure, after initially suspending the meetings.
The meeting has been scheduled for Sunday, March 6, at Pax Nova Hall in Bochabela Location from 09h30.
