The launch of a new change kit from Celtic and Adidas was met with predictable anger and sarcasm by supporters.
This year the club’s Social Media team have been under attack at almost every turn as fans demand news about the things that really matter- on the park.
Birthday Wishes and On This Day features have been the regular diet for Celtic fans on Twitter as they look elsewhere for news on the appointment of a new manager.
Last week the club announced details of Season Ticket renewals, eight days down the line the manager that was promised seems as elusive as ever.
Ange Postecoglou is the centre of speculation but there are a number of hurdles for the Yokohama Marinos boss to overcome before he can take a training session let alone select players to pull on the new-look Adidas kit.
Tellingly only one player made it into the launch of the new kit with James Forrest looking rather lonely inside an empty Celtic Park.

Manager ? Strategy ? Re-build ? – why are you appearing to still be asleep at the wheel ? We warned you not to fall asleep 2 years ago !!! But Peter and the board knew better eh !!

That’s great. Can I get one with Howe printed on the back? Naw, haud on, Postecoglou. Wait, wait, Harkin… naw, naw, just to be on the safe side, John Kennedy. Cheers.

Timing is everything unless you have no concept of how your customers are feeling at the moment. @CelticFC are a business that has lost all focus HH

100 days without a manager Celtic. This isn’t the time to say #FutureIsOurFocus cause it clearly isn’t.
