Letsoaka resigned from Golden Arrows on Tuesday, informing the club management of the strain that taking the job in Durban has put on his family life.

Letsoaka was linked with a move back to his home town of Bloemfontein following the resignation of Clinton Larsen as Celtic coach.

“Words cannot describe our utter joy, to sign a coach of such impeccable credentials with an incredible work ethic. He is a steward of South African football, having served the country at the highest level as a Safa technical director and also possessing high coaching qualifications and also serves as a Caf coaching instructor,” an excited Max Tshabalala told the club’s website.

“The culture of the team is paramount. There were a lot of applications from afar as Spain but we felt that Serame (as a South African), will be the appropriate choice as he is more familiar with our style of play. The reality that is Celtic is a huge brand and needs a genuine leader like Letsoaka to guide us to greater heights,” concluded the Celtic chairman.

Siwelele will officially unveil Letsoaka on Monday, December 7, at Siwelele Park.
