Bloemfontein Celtic have distanced themselves from the police raid that took place in the Free State.

The statement on the club’s site read, “Bloemfontein Celtic would like to categorically distance itself from the police raid that took place today (15th February 2018) in one of the buildings at 8 Mariam Makeba / Elizabeth Street. The building belongs to former Celtic owners’ family the (Augoustis) and Celtic has absolutely nothing to do with any police investigations.”
The club’s Chairman, Max Tshabalala explained on the club’s official website “Firstly let me start by sincerely apologizing to the Professional Soccer League for any damage this untruthful story might have caused.
“We have our offices at Siwelele Park( based in the Bayswater suburb) where we daily operate and have training fields. I distinctively declare that Celtic has and will not be involved in anything illegal because that will be disrespectful towards our supporters, sponsors and the soccer fraternity at large.
“Such malicious allegations must be condemned with the contempt they deserve because they are to the detriment of the brand.”
