Peter Lawwell doesn’t have his troubles to seek at the moment even though he has banked more than £7m in salary and bonus over the last three seasons, the Rodgers Revolution has certainly been profitable for some.

The Celtic Chief Executive has his work cut out on and off the pitch at the moment but a Lockdown look through some old editions of the Celtic View has unearthed some interesting quotes and a little publicised role he had under a previous regime.

In 1991 under the guidance and spin of Michael Kelly Celtic were trying to find their feet in a new commercial age while across the city Dave Murray was maximising everything, especially the overdraft to bring success to Ibrox.

Lawwell came in to Celtic as Financial Controller with some grand plans to maximise the ‘Celtic brand’ for the final decade of the 20th century.

A close look at the quotes reveals similar soundbites to those that come out of the club today, many equally as hollow such as the European aspirations with Malmo, Maribor, Cluj, AEK Athens, Ferencvaros and Sparta Prague all knocking Celtic out in recent seasons at a cost of many millions.
