Bloemfontein Celtic have terminated defender Thabang Matuka’s contract after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Coach Serame Letsoaka.
Celtic have paid out the player’s settlement fee on the remainder of his contract, and have handed him his clearance.
Matuka joined Celtic at the start of last season from Maritzburg United, however, things didn’t go well for the left-back when Serame Letsoaka took charge midway through last season.
He was then placed on the club’s transfer-list, along with striker Godfrey Massa, who has since signed with PSL newbies Baroka FC.
Matuka was shifted down the pecking order as the club signed Cheslyn Jampies from Jomo Cosmos and Sbusiso Mxoyana from NFD outfit Vasco Da Gama.
The 26-year-old only featured 15 times for the club last season, with most of those coming under former mentor Clinton Larson, who left to join Golden Arrows in December last year
