Bloemfontein Celtic will hold talks following aggressive behaviour between players in loss to Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 15 September 2014 Time: 08:32

Bloemfontein Celtic have confirmed that the club’s management, technical team and players will hold an urgent meeting this morning in ‘an effort to thrash out issues that might be affecting the players and technical team’.

Celtic were beaten 1-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns at Free State Stadium on Sunday and following the confusion that led to the goal, Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb was seen fighting with Wandisile Letlabika, whose back pass to Tignyemb was intercepted and resulted in Elias Pelembe scoring for the visitors.

Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala has released a statement confirming that there will be a meeting this morning and also apologies to the Siwelele fans for the loss.

“As the game ended, I personally went to the supporters together with the players and management to apologise for the loss,” he wrote. “We lost as a team and no individuals were responsible for the defeat.

“In a match, mistakes can work for you or against you, today, we were on the receiving end. When I took over this team I said that our supporters deserve better and they should not celebrate mediocrity. I understand their pain and promise our fans and followers that we will do better.”

The defeat has left Celtic in 11th place on the standings, with just one victory in their six league encounters thus far this season.

Patrick Tingnyemb deserves to be disciplined, what he did to Letlabika was disrespectful and it shouldn't go unpunished

This Patrick guy he thinks he is all that, no so longer ago he was the weakest link at Celtics until he took off that Head gear and no one was pushing shoving him there by the polls, I remember Stemmer doing well in that time but this unprofessional guy was brought back in...

Moneylodi Signdowns and Orlando Pierats win through luck....credit to their Sangomas

Unfortunately Pierats wont be lucky this time around as they did in beer cup and we'll humiliate the 3-0 just like 2010 TKO Final

Patrick Tignyemb must be punished heavily or worse deported. It's not his job to discipline other players plus that wasn't disciplining but fighting.... #Childish and very unprofessional.

In the heat of the moment tempers are bound to sky-rocket and that's what happened between those 2 players. Some people might have interpreted that differently but I saw Tinyemb as someone who wasn't willing to loose yesterday.

He stood against Sundowns having an avalanche of goals yesterday. As for Letlabika, he's experienced and knows better what he should have done. Anyway tough luck, mistakes happen.

Everytime when we play Celtics atrange things happen: who can forget when Celtics were handed a cup withou scoring but the ref said they scored, after that we came back stonger with Pitso & we walloped them home & away which resulted in LARSEN losing his job & the owner selling the club. Downs whip is painful i tell you. Now we beat them to such an extent that they fight one another, hhyi i Sundowns iyababa boss.

I once like this keeper, but after yesterday attitude, I end up with lots on my mind to be desired, that's unprofessional Patrick, credit to Wandisile for not returning the favour

Biggymann I also interpreted it in that way Biggy. The 'keeper was really let down after all the saves he had pulled the entire match. We've seen the best goalkeepers show their frustrations, even our very own Khune. But then, Tignyemb should've tried to be cool about it, especially after the 1st altercation

He desappointed lots of people, how can he manhandle his teammate like that?

And 90% of the games this season he cost celtics the points
