Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have rubbished the reports that the management was pondering a move for coach Kosta Papic.

Siwelele coach Serame Letsoaka is under pressure with the team having mustered a mere two wins from their last 17 games.

The club has dropped down to 12th on the table after an initial position within the top eight when Letsoaka replaced Clinton Larsen.

Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco poured cold water over the suggestions that Papic was on the verge of joining the club.

"As a club we haven't discussed anything about changes in the technical team, so nothing has changed," Konco told KickOff.

"As for Papic rumours I don't know about such a thing, I only see it in the media.

"There was some guy from The Sowetan who also asked me about that and I told him the same thing...I don't know about Papic coming to Celtic."
