I'VE CAD ENOUGH; Fed-up Jorge set to bail out.

Jorge Cadete has almost certainly played his last game for Celtic.

The Portuguese star waved goodbye to the fans after bagging a goal in yesterday's 3- 0 victory over Dundee United at Parkhead.

And Jorge insisted: "I felt sad leaving the field today because it could be my last game for Celtic."

Cadete, on just pounds 4,600 a week, is RAGING that Parkhead managing director Fergus McCann has not reimbursed him for paying the pounds 400,000 transfer fee to Sporting Lisbon out of his own pocket.

The player claims McCann gave him his word he'd pay him back every penny if he produced the goods.

But after EIGHT meetings with Cadete's agent, nothing has been settled.

It's another cruel blow to Celts after Paolo di Canio said last week he was on the verge of quitting the club over his money problems. Cadete said: "My troubles started as soon as I signed my three-year contract last year and I paid my own pounds 400,000 transfer fee to Sporting. "Celtic promised to pay back that money if I proved to be a good player and I've scored 33 goals this season. "I don't think I could do much better. "After eight meetings nothing's been sorted out so I think there have been enough meetings. "Iwould like to stay at Celtic because the fans deserve the BEST but I really do not think that is possible now. "It was bad enough with Tommy Burns leaving but with Paolo di Canio, Paul McStay and Peter Grant maybe going too it is a very sad time."
