The likely appointment of Gordon Strachan appears to have split the Celtic support.

Regular media appearances defending every aspect of the club that employs his two sons, Gavin and Craig, appeals to a lot of fans who recall his side twice reaching the last 16 of the Champions League.

Other fans take note of his criticism of any conflicting view to the fact that Celtic have had an utterly disastrous season that many fans were predicting from November or earlier. To date the club hierarchy have done very to remedy that with just a new in-coming manager that hasn’t worked in Europe for more than a decade.

A year ago Alan Nixon exclusively revealed the arrival of Gavin Strachan, last night he broke the news about Gordon in The Sun.

Turning to a ‘safe pair of hands’ to take things forward didn’t end well for Neil Lennon, having backed the board throughout the last 12 months it is difficult to see what new ideas and direction Gordon can bring on board with his two sons already in key roles.

Gavin has been first team coach for a year, clearly not at the request of Lennon. Behind the scenes Craig has been employed by Celtic for 14 years and is currently Senior European and UK scout.

Father’s Day is a time for families, one Dad in particular looks like further cementing his status by securing the future of two sons whose positive contribution to Celtic is very difficult to establish.
