Celtic fans flooded the club statement about Dom McKay’s departure with their concerns and suspicion.

Less than a fortnight after the transfer window closed, after less than three months as CEO the 43-year-old has left the job that he had apparently coveted for some time.

A 5pm Friday announcement will always be viewed suspiciously, one with personal reasons and the briefest of comment from the outgoing CEO adds to the mystery and concern.

McKay kept a very low public profile but made it very clear that he was a moderniser, perhaps not the message that a board that has employed the previous CEO for 17 years wanted to hear.

No other significant appointments were made by McKay. Gordon Strachan has been given a three month consultancy role but he has been known to the board far longer than he was to the departing CEO.

With Michael Nicholson stepping in as acting CEO the board has ensured continuity, for many fans it looks like a big step backwards with little in the way of an explanation coming from inside the club.
