Celtic have settled the threat of court action with former Newcastle winger Alan Thompson.
The issue is Thompson's dismissal from the club's coaching staff.
The former Celtic player's contract was terminated earlier this month and he instructed his lawyers to act over the issue.
A statement from Celtic: "Celtic PLC and Alan Thompson are pleased to advise that they have reached an agreement to amicably settle their legal dispute.
"Celtic PLC extend their thanks to Alan for his services to the club as a top-level player and a first-class coach.
"Alan would like to express his deep gratitude for the overwhelming and heartfelt backing he has received from Celtic fans everywhere, and for the support of his legal team at Bridge Litigation UK Solicitors.
"Alan intends to continue his coaching career, building on the invaluable experience gained during his time with Celtic.
"Alan wishes Celtic Football Club and the fans every success for the future.
"Celtic would like to thank Alan for the contribution he has made to the club over a number of years as both a player and a coach, and we sincerely wish him well for the future."
