Celtic brings tribute

2017-03-29 06:03

Bloemfontein Celtic must win the remaining Premier Soccer League fixtures to avoid relegation and to do well in the Nedbank Cup as a fitting tribute to the club’s late owner, Dr Rantlai Petrus “Whitehead” Molemela.

The father-figure who transformed Phunya Sele Sele into the giant it is today, died on Sunday (26/03). He died at a time when Celtic was battling relegation.

Sello Nduna, Celtic’s publicist, reckons the club winning the ten remaining league fixtures and doing well in the cup competition would be a deserving honour to its lifetime president.

“The remaining league fixtures are a must-win to honour Dr Molemela’s memory. The same goes for the Nedbank Cup. It will be a deserving tribute to this legend who dedicated part of his life to Celtic,” said Nduna.

Phunya Sele Sele begins the mammoth task of honouring its late owner with an away league encounter against Polokwane City on Saturday (01/04) at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Celtic’s next encounter will be in the Nedbank Cup against National First Division team Mbombela United on 9 April at the Dr R.P. Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein.
