It has been quite a whirlwind day at Parkhead. First it emerged that Kyogo Furuhashi was set to spend quite some time on the sidelines. Then, news broke out that there won’t be away fans in the upcoming Europa League game against Real Betis in Seville. And now Celtic’s official website have confirmed that Dom McKay has stood down from his position as Chief Executive for personal reasons.
Michael Nicholson has been appointed as the acting Chief Executive Officer. He has been with the club since 2013.
Of course, it is safe to say that the news is worrying. During McKay’s time at the club, it was certainly looking like they were moving in a bit of a different direction and we were starting to see results. Ange Postecoglou has proven to be a great appointment while the Hoops did very well in the summer transfer window as well considering the circumstances.
Now, following his departure, one has to question how things will be moving forward and whether the plan that was in place will go as well in his absence.

Celtic have major worry following McKay’s departure
Hopefully, Postecoglou will continue to get the backing that he needs to turn things around moving forward.
He has certainly shown till now that he is a manager with a plan and a clear vision for how he wants this team to play. We have started to see some results already but there is a long way to go and it will take more than one good transfer window to get the Hoops back to their dominant best.
On the pitch, Kyogo’s injury will be a big blow for the club as he has perhaps been the team’s best player this season till now. It will be interesting to see who starts up front in his absence.
We would like to wish McKay the best for his future.
