Celtic Shared call on Support to hold the Board to account

Celtic Shared have taken to social media in the wake of today’s 1-1 draw against Dundee United at Celtic Park which leaves Celtic SIXTH in the league, trailing leaders theRangers by six points before we are even into October.

It’s hard to argue with much that the pressure group has stated in their twitter statement as it’s what supporters leaving the game today were all talking about. Here’s what Celtic Shared have to say, please add your own thoughts below…

Despite last year’s capitulation and covid uncertainty, the Celtic support backed the club in the summer by renewing in their tens of thousands. We were promised a new era, as the incoming CEO spoke of delivering a “world class” football club across all departments.

The fans got behind the new manager, buoyed by his charisma and enthusiasm. Ange however made it known that he felt he was being let down by the board in their failure to deliver signings quickly enough, leading to a makeshift team being eliminated from the first CL qualifier.

Some new signings arrived and some impressive home performances gave cause for optimism, but it was becoming clear all was not right behind the scenes. The transfer window closed with our squad threadbare, and the CEO who promised the world had resigned his position.

An official club statement claimed that Dom McKay left for “personal reasons”, whilst sources within the club briefed journalists, fan media and supporters groups that this was untrue, claiming he was let go because he was performing abysmally within his new role.

There is a lot of football left to play and we desperately hope that Ange can turn things around. It is clear however that the Celtic support must do all that it can to hold our board to account to ensure that we do not see another season written off by their incompetence.

  1. This board should’ve been ran out of town in the summer after a disastrous last season and the Eddie Howe debacle. They’ve cost us nearly £200 million in Champions League money by failing to buy players to get us there, but as usual they try to get there on the cheap and we’ve failed due to their ineptitude. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail and this board have consistently failed us year on year for 20 years. We’re cannon fodder in Europe now, we’re an easy draw, even for clubs who have lesser budgets than us. The days when were a European powerhouse are long gone, you could say we’re a laughing stock now and this board have made us that. The resolution 11/12 situation, the 5 way agreement and insisting we needed the old firm brand all happened on this boards watch. They’re playing us for fools and Celtic Shared are correct to hold them to account, if ever there was abrogation of duty then this board are culpable on all fronts.
