Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco will not protest the fielding of striker Camaldine Abraw, who remains the focus of a long-running transfer saga.

The league's governing body gave Kaizer Chiefs the green light to register the player despite the contractual cloud hanging over his head.

Abraw, who played for Free State Stars last season, signed with Celtic at the end of the 2014/15 Premiership campaign and then reneged on the deal to sign with Amakhosi.

Following weeks of speculation the Togolese marksman made his debut for Chiefs in the 4-1 thrashing of SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Celtic no not plan to contest Chiefs fielding the player, but remain steadfast in their quest to have his transfer to Chiefs annulled.

"Remember the case is on an appeal so it's okay before the appeal committee and there is no problem for Chiefs using the player," Konco told KickOff.

"I believe he has the PSL's card and he is registered properly. However, we are not giving up on the case.

"He is on an appeal and how can we give up on the case when it is on an appeal? So let the process take its course and there is nothing wrong on what Chiefs did."
