Bloemfontein Celtic coach Ernst Middendorp believes new signing Musa Bilankulu will "add more steel" to the Phunya Sele Sele backline.
Celtic recruited the 28-year-old Bilankulu on a six-month loan deal from Bidvest Wits last week.
“At the end of last year we were without the services of Limbikani Mzava and John Arwuah for a few games and that obviously weakened our defensive structure to a degree,” Middendorp told his side's official website.
“Bilankulu will add more steel to our defence and obviously more cover across the defensive structures,” added the German.
Bilankulu joined the Students from Golden Arrows on a two-year contract in July 2013.
Meanwhile, Celtic have promoted former academy player, 21-year-old midfielder Lindokuhle Phungulwa, to their first team squad.
