Dominic McKay is now the man in charge at Celtic Park.
Peter Lawwell’s tenure came to an official end on June 30th with McKay taking up the post from July 1 onwards.
The new CEO is already hard at work and he’s already sent out an email to Celtic fans about forging the path ahead.
One major thing from the email sent to us and other fans was the season ticket information.
McKay declared Celtic yet again have the highest season ticket holders in the country.
What’s more is McKay declared on season ticket deadline day – Celtic sold the largest amount of season tickets in one day in our history – we believe around 8k renewed last minute.
Here’s what McKay had to say about season tickets in the widely circulated email:
“I also want to take this opportunity to personally thank you for renewing your Season Ticket for 2021/22. The response has been incredible and provides an excellent foundation upon which Ange and I can build.
“We have recorded a fantastic level of interest in our Season Ticket renewals and yet again we have the highest number of Season Ticket holders in the country backing the team for the season ahead – a phenomenal figure which is quickly approaching sell-out.
“Last Friday saw the most Season Tickets ever sold by the Club in one day, in our entire history!
“We are all very much looking forward to welcoming our Season Ticket holders back to Celtic Park very soon, and I’m encouraged by the recent Government guidance that indicates a possible return of fans to football in the coming few weeks. We will of course keep you updated as we get information from the Government and relevant authorities.”
McKay has a massive rebuild job on his hands. He is going into every department at Celtic and going through it methodically.
The CEO also has to change the infrastructure at the club and find a director of football in the coming weeks and months.
We have the manager in place, now he needs backed in the transfer market. Celtic fans have backed the Hoops again, it’s time the club backs the manager.
