Bartlett already a hit at Celtic

Posted: 14 November 2008 Time: 7:00 pm

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Shaun Bartlett had his first training session with Bloemfontein Celtic today and immediately made a lasting impression on Mich D’Avray and his technical team.

Phunya Sele Sele CEO Ike Augousti confirmed to KickOff.com the presence of the former Bafana Bafana striker and added that they have already opened negotiations with the intention of offering him a contract.

“Yes, Shaun Bartlett is here. He trained with the team today and the chances are high that we will sign him.

“We are currently engaged in negotiations and hopefully by next week he will officially be a Celtic player.”

Bartlett’s move to Bloemfontein will be welcomed by all concerned as the Free Staters have struggling to pick up points in the Absa Premiership since the beginning of the season.

Bartlett played under Mich D’Avray during the 90s whilst the coach was still handling Cape Town Spurs.

Hai,lo Mdala,how can he be a hit at this age? The best thing is to hang up his boots before he embarasses himself to the young upcoming stars.

Shoes was firing last season at 42 years old so I say there is plenty still in the tank for Bartlett. Go for it my friend!

Bartlett is a great player and last season he made positive impact while at Chiefs but needs another clever and sharp patner.

"players like Shoes,Roger Milla,Gabriel Batistuta the list is endless" You cant paint all succesfull players with one brush.Does this mean therefore that Shaun will be a hit at Celtics? Maybe a role model to younger players who will be playing around him,I can buy that.Just to clear your perception Thabo,I am a Sundowner.
