Konco’s remarks come after several reports claiming Siwelele had cash-flow problems with some junior players and staff receiving their salaries late or not being paid.

According to Sowetan’s sources, this is a regular occurrence at Celtic, with some players having had a bleak Christmas after they didn’t receive their December salaries.

The Celtic CEO admits the club has failed to pay staff on time but insists there are no outstanding payments.

“But there were indeed some staff members who didn’t receive their salaries,” Konco told Sowetan. “However, as it is, everyone has been paid. We had cash-flow problems, hence we delayed payment in certain instances, but everything is sorted out now.”
