Davie Provan has called on Peter Lawwell to resign as Celtic Chief Executive after the shambolic season appears to be all but over after Celtic dropped more points against Livingston yesterday. The Celtic winger turned pundit has always given his honest opinion of events at the club and following the Dubai fiasco, he admitted he had sympathy but with poor results following, there needs to be accountability from Lawwell.
In his Sun column, Provan said that Lawwell’s stay at Celtic should come to an end this season. After an incredible Quadruple Treble, Celtic have regressed at an alarming rate.
“Celtic’s season is over and we’re not yet out of January. Ten in a row lies in the gutter as Lennon limps on as a lame duck.
“Given the speed and scale of the club’s decline, it would be appropriate to hear what plans the board have going forward.
“If they have any, Lawwell wasn’t for sharing them. Between now and the end of the season, Lennon will be the whipping boy for angry punters. But Celtic’s problems go all the way to the top.
“Had to laugh when hearing Lawwell urge supporters to help “take this magnificent football club as far as we possibly can.
“He’s right, it is a magnificent club. But it’s no longer in the right hands. The game is up Peter. Please go now.”
Six wins in twenty games. That is where Celtic currently find themselves. Out of Europe, out of the League Cup and seemingly out of the title race. 21 points behind Rangers, albeit with 3 games in hand.
McNeill paid £125,000 for the ex-Killie player and it would prove to be a good return. Provan won 4 league titles, 2 Scottish Cups and 1 League Cup during a nine year stay at Celtic Park. Provan made 303 appearances, scoring 42 goals. Despite his media work being unbiased since retiring, Provan should be remembered as an excellent player that gave Celtic his all.
