The Siya crew reported earlier that the deal could be jeopardy after it was discovered the defender had a problem with a bone in his foot.

A statement on the club's website read," Ajax Cape Town can confirm that Rivaldo Coetzee will return to the club from Johannesburg where the player was undergoing a medical examination ahead of a propsed transfer to Scottish Champions , Glasgow Celtic.

Following a routine medical examination carried out by the Celtic medical department they discovered an underlying problem with his right foot. The clubs were therefore unable to conclude the deal based on the medical information available. The player will return to Ajax Cape Town for further evaluation.

The injury has not hampered Coetzee to date having not missed out on any competitive action either for his club or the national team. Ajax Cape Town can confirm that they were not aware of any condition that would have potentially hampered a transfer to Celtic.

While disappointed that the deal could not be completed at this point the club are fully committed to giving the player the care and attention required in order to make a full recovery. Stuart Baxter, the Bafana Bafana head coach has been informed as Rivaldo had been called up for the upcoming matches against Cape Verde.

I suspect his height as a centreback is a hindrance. He needs to play as a holding midfielder, a number 6.
