Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane has been showered with more love by Siwelele fans since moving to the Bloemfontein-based side from Orlando Pirates at the start of the season.

Mabokgwane has endeared himself to the Siwelele faithful who have composed a song to honour him.

Mabokgwane stepped into the shoes of veteran shot-stopper Patrick Tignyemb who left the club he served for over 10 years for Chippa United following a public spat with Celtic management.

The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper thanked the Celtic supporters for cheering him on during games from the stands.

“I’m overwhelmed by this ‘there’s no amount of money you can buy’ thanks for your love & support Siwelele Masele,” read a tweet from Mabokgwane.
