Brian McNally has called for an immediate change in management at Celtic and warned the club of the consequences of failing to act.
The former Sunday Mirror reporter covered the North-East of England for decades at a couple of newspapers including the Sunday Mirror but his only personal interest in the game is centred on Celtic Park.
After two wins in seven matches Saturday’s 2-2 draw away to Hibs wasn’t any great surprise to Celtic fans with all of the failings of the season to date showing up during the 90 plus minutes.
Only an immediate change of management staff can bring a glimmer of hope to Celtic’s disintegrating campaign.
We’re going backwards at an alarming rate under Lennon & his coaches in what should have been a historic season.
Dermot Desmond must step in now & sort out this mess.

The failure by the #Celtic hierarchy to address the glaring failings of Neil Lennon & his coaches has crushed the hopes of the historic 10 for most realistic fans.
But the greatest damage to the club moving on is going to be financial if they let this collapse slide any further.

Fans can see an alarming drop in standards, the truth is that the since the 2018 transfer window sales of Moussa Dembele and Stuart Armstrong the squad has dropped noticeably in quality.
It now seems like a perfect storm, there is no obvious solution with an absence of leadership and responsibility from the Board of Directors and Chief Executive.
Faced with finding a manager at short notice when Brendan Rodgers left for Leicester City in February 2019 Lennon was the obvious caretaker.
Three months later no other candidate was considered when the former Hibs boss was given the job on a permanent basis with that recruitment ‘process’ causing alarm with many Celtic fans as a historic season hangs by a thread.
