Neil Lennon has revealed that he has still to speak to Dom McKay.
This morning it was announced that the current Chief Executive of the Scottish Rugby Union would be replacing Peter Lawwell.
Lennon and Lawwell have been there for each other through a torturous season at Celtic Park with fans still in the dark about the managerial review promised by the club in December.
With Lawwell on his way out of power the focus will be on the manager more than ever but so far he hasn’t heard from the incoming CEO.
Speaking to Radio Clyde, Lennon said:
I haven’t had dialogue with him. I only became aware of it this morning so maybe in time over the next few months I will get to meet him or get to talk to him.
I think it is an exciting new chapter for him, a great challenge for him and he will get huge amounts of support from people at the club.’
McKay will officially take over as CEO on July 1 but is likely to be heavily involved in decision making in the interim.
With a background in Communications, PR and Marketing many fans are hoping that a proper Director of Football is appointed with a clear remit and ambitions for the club to progress and develop.
At the 2020 AGM held in December Lawwell boasted that £35m had been spent on players since July 2019 but with a 23-point gap in the SPFL table it is hard to justify that level of spending for minimal return including two failures to reach the group stage of the Champions League.
