Lyle, who was also briefly with SuperSport United, has become a prominent member of the Celtic side after completing five seasons with the team.
It was therefore somewhat of a surprise when Cape Town City announced his signing, although the deal was put on hold due to a contractual dispute.

“Celtic got something and I get to be where I want to be. So, it is settled and there is no beef. No hard feelings,” he told the Sowetan.
