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 for a fortnight and fined two weeks' wages on Tuesday following a dressing-room bust-up with Strachan after Saturday's 1-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League draw with Hearts.
McGeady's agent, David Holbrook, quickly moved to say the player would be contesting the punishment but would not rule out the Irishman continuing his career at Parkhead and said: "I don't know if you can say there is no chance of a reconciliation."
He added: "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."
