However, indications are that Celtic have moved quickly to find the 25-year-old’s replacement, by securing the signature of Mashikinya ahead of the new 2017/18 season.

Mashikinya made 17 appearances for the City side under the mentorship of former Head Coach Eric Tinkler last season, where he helped the team clinch the 2016 Telkom Knockout trophy and secure a third place finish on the Absa Premiership league standings.

Now, the player is set to take the next step of his professional career, with Celtic confirming the 26-year-old as their first signing for the new campaign.
