“Yes sir, Dublin will be fine,” Alan Burrows gives Irish fans green light for Motherwell v Celtic PPV

Dom McKay posted one or two updates on social media in his very short spell as Celtic CEO, we haven’t heard anything at all from his successor Michael Nicholson on social media or indeed via any other form of communication, although to be fair Ange Postecoglou went into some detail at yesterday’s Mainstream Media Conference where he outlined the strategic planning that he is currently involved in with the Interim CEO for the short, medium and long term.

We reported on this yesterday – see below – but it indicates that Nicholson (of course he is) is set to be appointed as the Celtic CEO on a permanent basis, perhaps at the forthcoming Celtic PLC AGM.

Compare and contrast with the approach that the Motherwell CEO Alan Burrows takes. Burrows has been leading the effort on social media to promote the Food Bank Collection at Fir Park today and in doing so he has been happy to engage not only with his own supporters but also with the Celtic fans and watching this over the past week or so there has been no aggravation, unpleasantness of any of the other nasty stuff that sometimes is seen on social media.

Burrows has also explaining to supporters the status of the Pay Per View stream that Motherwell is offering for today’s game at a very reasonable price of £12. However the match cannot be shown in England and Burrows was happy to give an explanation to a supporter asking for the reason why that is the case. The Motherwell CEO also confirmed that supporters in Ireland can watch the match in his streaming service today, something we were unsure about yesterday, having earlier broken the story that there was to be a black-out as far as England is concerned.
