Ramasimong signs for Bloemfontein Celtic

Ramasimong signs for Bloemfontein Celtic

MASERU – Former Bantu star Maloisane Ramasimong was yesterday unveiled as a new signing by South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit Bloemfontein Celtic.
The South Africa-born winger became vital to Bantu after joining the club from Celtic’s development team in 2016 and was a key spark during Mafeteng giants’ successful 2017/18 campaign.
He helped ‘A Matšo Matebele’ win both the Independence Cup and Econet Premier League title last season and was named the Footballer and Players’ Player of the Year at the league’s end of year awards last month.

Ramasimong joins Lesotho international Tumelo Khutlang in moving straight from the local premiership to the PSL this off-season.
Khutlang joined Black Leopards from Lioli last month.
Both departures were a long time in coming and such was Ramasimong’s excellence last season, Bantu’s management were resigned to losing his services this off-season despite the winger having a year left on his deal with the club.

‘A Matšo Matebele’ spokesperson Bokang Phasumane said despite that Ramasimong still had a contract with the Mafeteng side, “good working relations” with Celtic meant he was allowed to return to his country of birth. No mention of a transfer fee being paid was made.

“We have a good working relationship with Celtic,” Phasumane said. “Maloisane still had a contract with us but we allowed him to leave because Celtic have helped us in the past too by giving us players, for example, Lindokuhle Phungulwa. So we had no problem (allowing Ramasimong to join Celtic),” he said.
Celtic start their PSL campaign on Sunday against Chippa United at the Dr Molemela Stadium.
