Perhaps the most obvious take-away from Desmond’s interview was that in it he confirms that Celtic actually intended the close-season to be chaotic. The board actually planned that next season was to be a “transitional one” both on and off the pitch.
I’m afraid that there’s simply no way of looking at that which doesn’t fill me with the deepest concern, and in this article I’m going to outline some of the reasons why I believe that to be the case.
A lot of people were pleased to see that Desmond has finally spoken out; I would have been happier if his comments didn’t confirm some of my worst fears.
Over the course of the last few months, one of the most troubling aspects of our current crisis has been that the board has not looked, at any time, as if it had a contingency plan sitting in a drawer somewhere.
That’s even more glaring in light of his comments.
We accuse the Ibrox club of taking ridiculous gambles at times … but surely we have taken one of the biggest here?
We bet everything on Lennon and ten in a row … and yet we allowed obvious problems to go unaddressed an unanswered.
This is our leadership.
This is how we got into such a mess.
