Roger Mitchell has promised to put together a package to buy Celtic- but not today.
With no permanent CEO in place some Celtic fans are getting misty eyed over the former SPL chief who is revelling in the attention of social media.
The occasional media interview in which he details his life-long love of Celtic has warmed some fans to Mitchell with communications at a bare minimum inside Celtic, except when it is Season Ticket renewal time.
After his four year stint as the first CEO of the SPL Mitchell has returned to Italy where he has a variety of business interest.
Dermot Desmond is the biggest individual shareholder in Celtic, strengthening his stake in 1999 when Fergus McCann stepped down then through two subsequent share issues.
The last significant share dealing was in March 2019 when Lindsell Train increased their holding from 17.1% to 18.4%, paying a price of 160p per share.
Celtic shares are currently trading at 107.5p.
What is truly astonishing is how big a club Celtic is. How many people are totally invested in the club.
One day I’ll try to get some PE money together and buy it, and give these good people what they deserve.
But not today.

Youre not a neutral. ??
You are tier1 for the Celtic diaspora. You’d be targeted pretty early.
