In a statement released on the club's official website, Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco said, despite the players abilities, the rules and guidleines of the club were paramount in formulating their decision.
“We have a rule book that is given to each player when they join the team and all players are expected to use it as a guideline," Konco was quotes as saying.
"We expect our players to be professional on and off the field, considering that they represent a brand that is backed by sponsors and supporters.
"We are sad to release Cheslyn but the rules have to be followed as a sign of respect to the club and his teammates.”
Jampies joined the Free State-based club at the beginning of the season from Jomo Cosmos, and made just one PSL appearance in their 1-0 defeat to Cape Town City a fortnight ago.
"The player has been given his clearance and is at liberty to join a team of his choice. Celtic wishes Cheslyn the best of luck in his career and future plans," concluded the statement.
Meanwhile, captain and goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb was also handed a fine for "intimidation and harassment following an off-the-field incident".
