Aiden McGeady has not necessarily burned his bridges with Celtic manager Gordon Strachan, according to the player's agent.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder was suspended on Tuesday for a fortnight and fined two weeks' wages following a dressing-room bust-up with Strachan after Saturday's 1-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League draw with Hearts.
McGeady reportedly aimed some stinging personal remarks at Strachan and, following the severity of the punishment, it appeared that his days at Celtic, whom he joined as a schoolboy, were numbered.
It is not the first time McGeady and Strachan have reportedly clashed, with rumours of a confrontation following the 4-2 home defeat to Rangers at the beginning of the season.
McGeady's agent, David Holbrook, quickly moved to say the player would be contesting Tuesday's punishment and he told PA Sport he is still investigating the appeals procedure.
However, Holbrook would not rule out McGeady continuing his career at Parkhead.
``I don't know if you can say there is no chance of a reconciliation,'' he said.``I presume Celtic are acting as they are entitled to do and we are taking action as we are entitled to do.
``I am checking a lot of small print in his contract and making sure that everything has been done according to the club's rules and the rules of the SFA and SPL.
``To my understanding, Aiden has been suspended for training from all squads but I will be clarifying whether his presence is required at any of Celtic's premises.
``That is the next stop. It is football but it could be office work or shipbuilding. There is a dispute but that is not to say that the grievance will not be reconciled.''
