Celtic confirm that Tommy McIntyre has left the club to pursue new opportunities

Celtic this evening confirmed that Tommy McIntyre has left the club after 13 years of service. Tommy has most recently been manager of the Celtic B team but after a re-organisation in the summer which saw Stephen McManus leave the first team coaching staff to join Darren O’Dea on the B team staff, Tommy has been conspicuous by his absence.

And that little mystery appears to have been cleared up with the club wishing Tommy all the best for the future in today’s statement posted on the Celtic official website, shown below.

Following changes being made to the coaching structure within the Club’s B team, Tommy McIntyre has left Celtic to pursue new opportunities.

Tommy was the B team manager and in over 12 years’ continuous service, he oversaw the development and progression of many players within the Club, together with many successes for the B team.

Tommy has left with the collective best wishes of all at the Club, and with our collective thanks for his commitment in his role.

Tommy McIntyre said: “It’s been a real honour and I have been immensely proud to serve Celtic Football Club and its supporters for the last 13 years.

“To all the managers, coaches, staff, and players that I have had the privilege to work with, my sincere thanks to each and every one of them. I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the Club for so many memorable years.

“I’m extremely proud of the many successes and fantastic memories over the years, and having played a part in creating a pathway for a thriving Academy which has seen the development of so many talented players.

“Finally, to the fans for supporting myself and the many young players coming through throughout my tenure. Such support is always greatly appreciated but never taken for granted.”

Tommy also posted a farewell message to Celtic on social media this evening saying: It’s been an incredible journey. Honoured to having played a part in the development of so many talented players and worked with so many good people. Good luck to everyone ⁦⁦at Celtic ⁩ and onwards to the next challenge.”
