Balde withdraws legal action against Celtic

Former Celtic player Bobo Balde has withdrawn claims the club breached his contract. The French-born footballer, who left Parkhead at the end of his contract last summer, had also lodged the claim over alleged non-payment of wages.

A judgment issued by the Employment Tribunal Office in Glasgow said the player had put an end to the matter.

The document stated "the claim was withdrawn by the claimant", though no explanation was given as to why.

The 34 year old, who now plays for French team Valenciennes FC, signed for Celtic in 2001, and was speculated to be earning around £30,000 a week.

But in the latter part of his career, he only made a handful of appearances after a well-documented fallout with the club.
