BRENDAN RODGERS will make a new move for the South African starlet 
Rivaldo Coetzee once he sees the full medical report on the defender, according to the man who signed him.

Celtic pulled the plug on an £800,000 move for the 20-year-old after he failed a fitness in Glasgow at the end of the last transfer window.

Instead, Pretoria side Mamelodi Sundowns splashed out £500,000 for the Ajax Cape Town kid.

Coetzee was originally expected to be ruled out for between nine months and a year because of a problem with his right foot.

But Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane insists the player will be back within three months.

And he reckons Celtic could resurrect their interest in him.

He said: “Medically his condition will be sorted. He does not have to go through an operation which would rule him out for nine months like everybody said. 

“He will soon be back, I think three months maybe. The specialist gave us a report and we are happy with the report. 

“I think when Brendan Rodgers sees the medical report again, he will be willing to have another look at the player again.

“Football is a game of moments. He is available, you’ve got to take the chance. Do you want to lose this chance to sign a 20-year-old?

“Brendan Rodgers speaks so well about the boy because he has been watching his games. He has international experience. Just wait, Rivaldo is a good investment.”

Coetzee has been capped 22 times by his country after becoming South Africa’s youngest ever international at 17.
