There was never any official word from the club that they were even creating such a role but with Peter Lawwell retiring and Nick Hammond quitting as Head of Football Operations in March there is a need for someone between boardroom and the dug-out to be making decisions.
With Richard Hughes dropping out of contention last week when Eddie Howe called off negotiations in-coming CEO Dom McKay doesn’t have his problems to seek.
Finding a manager, Director of Football and recruiting at least half a dozen first team players as the build up to the European Championships gets underway is a tall order. On July 1 McKay will be left holding the baby as Lawwell slips off into retirement.
When the decision with Harkin leaves negotiations with Postecoglou is anyone’s guess but it is a long time since Celtic delivered good news to their fans.

He was leading Postecoglou efforts, so no Ange either? What a disaster

So the whole Fergal and Howe thing officially put to bed. Wouldn’t be a catastrophe but for if it took these clowns 3 months and turns out there is no plan B! Shambles
