Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs failed to send a representative to the PSL hearing that was intended to settle the dispute over Camaldine Abraw’s transfer.

Chiefs’ absence appears to have angered Celtic who posted the news on their website, saying:

“Bloemfontein Celtic honored the Premier Soccer League (PSL) - Dispute Resolution Chamber hearing which was scheduled for today (30th of June 2015) at the PSL offices to resolve the matter between Celtic and Kaizer Chiefs.

“Celtic are contesting the signing of Camaldine Abraw by Kaizer Chiefs. The Togolese striker had signed a three year pre-contact with Siwelele prior to being linked with and subsequently unveiled by Chiefs.

“Unfortunately the hearing that was supposed to possibly resolve the matter did not take place because a Chiefs representative was not available at the hearing.”

Earlier in the day the PSL insisted that the proceedings were not meant to be an official DRC hearing, but rather a means find an amicable solution between the two clubs.

Whatever the case may be, the no-show has further angered Celtic who continues to stand up to the powerful Soweto Giants.

The club vows to continue to fight to get the player back.

“The matter has been taken to Arbitration which will take place within 14 days from today. The exact date for the sitting is still to be confirmed.

“Celtic continues to affirm its stand on the matter and will explore the available avenues to contest the case.
