Neil Lennon and Nick Hammond have left the Celtic Park building and Peter Lawell will start to hand over his portfolio to Dominic McKay who will arrive early at Celtic Park on April 19th. A positive step in the eyes of most if not all Celtic fans.
Peter will officially sign off on July 1st, who knows maybe he and Scott Brown can sign off their time at Celtic with another piece of silverware in the cabinet with the Scottish Cup up for grabs after a European and League campaign we would rather erase from our memories.
Hopefully Eddie Howe will be also in place as manager and maybe then we will get a better picture of how the football department will be structured at the club going forward be that with a Sporting director, Director of Football or Head of Recruitment.
Whoever comes in to fill this role they will need a short-term plan to get us back on track but we as fans would hope to see a long-term strategy with so much uncertainty surrounding the World of football and the financial implications after Covid.
Hopefully the vaccine can be the game changer that gets us back to Celtic Park as a United support and Dominic’s first action as CEO will be to let the fans know that the board have agreed to the share proposal put forward from the Celtic Trust for season book holders to be compensated for this season with shares without a penny leaving the club as we will need as much cash available at these uncertain times to rebuild.
I spoke to David Low from the Celtic Trust a few weeks back on the Celtic Soul Podcast if you fancy a listen and to find out more about the proposal and the Trust please click link below.
