After leaving Celtic’s training camp in Dubai, Shane Duffy deleted his social media networks.
The defender of The Hoops, who is currently on loan from Brighton, was pictured yesterday morning boarding a flight to London Heathrow.
Due to a personal family matter, it is claimed the Republic of Ireland captain had to fly back urgently.

The Central Defense was expected to be improved by Duffy, but his transfer from Brighton was a disaster. Only in Saturday’s loss at Ibrox did Lennon use him when Nir Bitton – a midfielder who started in central defense – was sent off.
We reported yesterday how, as a bundle of nerves behind the scenes, former Celtic defender Adam Virgo thinks Shane Duffy would have struggled even more against Rangers at a packed Ibrox Stadium.
“I don’t even want to think what Shane would have been like in a full stadium [at Ibrox],”I don’t even want to think what Shane would be like in a full stadium [at Ibrox]. I think for him it would have been ten times worse. When he came on against Rangers, he looked like a nervous mess. Signings like that can happen, like they did to me.
Unfortunately, so many errors were made by Shane that led to goals. Neil is going to be very courageous to hang on to him. I don’t think Shane would tell you that he didn’t get a chance.
