Cape Town - Golden Arrows head coach Steve Komphela was captured on Sunday celebrating with opposing Bloemfontein Celtic fans after his Golden Arrows side were handed a 5-0 drubbing at the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium.

Celtic took the lead after just 39 seconds with the remainder of the first-half continuing in the same vein as they doubled their lead in the 13th minute and headed into the break with a 3-0 advantage.

Phunya Sele Sele added two more goals for an emphatic 5-0 win as they grabbed their first win of the Absa Premiership campaign.

Their win led to somewhat confusing images as former Celtic coach Komphela was seen celebrating with the home supporters despite an embarrassing defeat.

Komphela was shown singing and dancing with fans, leading to a mixed reception on social media as fans were seen to either be calling for his sacking after his disrespectful actions with others claiming he was just showing a bit of sportsmanship.

The 51-year-old was at the helm of the Bloemfontein side from the start of the 2018/2019 season but resigned in December 2018 after just a few months in charge.
