Forty-eight hours after the defeat from Ross County- the fourth successive home loss- Peter Lawwell has decided to communicate directly with the Celtic support.

As a rallying call it went down with the appeal of a cold pie and lukewarm Bovril in the middle of winter.

Over the last couple of days Jim White and Keith Jackson had quoted from Celtic sources leaving fans to guess about the accuracy of the message that they have been asked to take on board.

Lawwell used 234 words in tonight’s statement which contained no detail or plan, tellingly there was no mention of Neil Lennon as he implored fans to move forward together.

That will include the 50,000 that splashed out for Season Tickets with no sign of getting into a match or gratitude from the club, not even a discount voucher for the club shop to extract more money.

No mention was made of being knocked out of the Champions League, Europa League or Betfred Cup but it seems that a win over Hearts later this month will be justification for the multiple failings that have dogged this season with the team heading to the San Siro on Thursday on a run of two wins in 10 matches.

From the statement it seems that Lawwell has ran out of ideas- supporter patience and backing looks to be beyond the point of no return for the CEO who has been in place for 17 years.
