Bobo Balde has reported Celtic to FIFA after being fined a total of £100,000 so far this season.

;D Whats he been doing? Can only be on about £15k a week.


BOBO BALDE has reported Celtic to FIFA after being fined a total of £100,000.

Mailsport can reveal the Guinea defender has been docked four weeks' wages for a variety of breaches of discipline since August.

Balde doesn't agree with the punishments and asked the PFA and his lawyers to try to reach an agreement with Celtic chief Peter Lawwell.

That move failed and on the recommendation of the PFA a dossier was sent by Balde to FIFA.

The PFA are confident FIFA will side with the player but Celtic believe their case is rock solid.

FIFA have received Balde's paperwork but it could take months to reach a decision and it's likely the player will have left Glasgow before they announce their verdict.

Balde is no longer a recognised member of Gordon Strachan's squad and has been banished to train with Chris McCart's youth team at Barrowfield.

The stopper's first-team ticket allowance has been wiped and he is banned from the stadium when Strachan's side are playing.

Balde, signed by Martin O'Neill in the summer of 2001, was fined for not reporting for the opening SPL game against St Mirren.

He was in France having been handed written permission by the club to talk to interested parties to organise a move out of Parkhead.

Celtic had given Balde the Friday off but wanted him to report back to the team hotel on the eve of the game. The player thought he had more time to work on a deal.

Balde was also fined for refusing to train with the youth team when Strachan first made it clear he wouldn't be considered for action.

He reported to Lennoxtown and trained on his own but has been working out with the youths for the past four months.

A move to Birmingham on transfer deadline day in August was on offer but Balde said no.

City boss Alex McLeish is back in for the player and plans to land him in the January window.

Balde is now ready to leave and hopes he can sort out an amicable departure next month.

But he won't sign a confidentiality agreement and that means he could be at Parkhead until his contract ends in May unless Celtic can smooth a parting of the ways

I heard he's on closer to £40k that's why his moves to England collapsed.
