Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have confirmed that the club's former owner, Rantlai Petrus Molemela, has passed away following a long-term battle with illness.

Molemela, who was the life-time president of the Premiership outfit, died on Sunday morning at the age of 83.

Siwelele chairperson Max Tshabalala issued a statement on the club's official website which read: "We are saddened by the death of our mentor, leader and father-figure at the team.

"We are incredibly devastated and emotionally paralyzed by the loss of such a valuable and immensely experienced administrator who not only made a contribution at Celtic but for soccer, sport and the community at large.

"It is painful losing Ntate at this time when we genuinely needed him for his motivation and guidance towards both the management and players.

"We will forever cherish his dedication and absolute love towards the team. He has built a legacy that we have to maintain as a brand. May his soul rest in peace."
