Statement from the Joint Administrator

Following Luca Connell’s move to Celtic, a spokesperson for the Joint Administrator for BWFC has issued the following statement.

"We took legal advice once Luca submitted his notice of termination.

"However, the discrepancy in the regulations between England and Scotland meant we had no option but to accept the situation.

"To their credit, Celtic recognised that and have agreed to pay substantially more than the financial obligations in Luca's contract."
