Former SPL chief and Celtic fan Roger Mitchell took a major swipe at the outgoing Peter Lawwell on Sunday, hours after Celtic were thumped 4-1 at Ibrox.
One Celtic fan wrote on social media ‘Any role at all for Peter Lawwell at Celtic, no matter how small then I’m out‘ to which Mitchell replied:
This is what happens when you know the cost of everything and value of nothing. We could have spent a wee bit more than usual and kept our foot on their throat for ever.
Peter has noone to blame but himself. https://t.co/rva7EJv9mw

Given Celtic’s domestic success over the years, Peter Lawwell does believe he’s signing off having done his best for the club.
Mitchell hits the nail on the head and highlights so many Celtic supporters frustrations over the piece. Peter has always just tried to do enough and no more to be the best team in Scotland.
The way he approached Champions League qualifiers, refusing to buy early on many occasions and rolling the dice whether we got into the group stages or not. A tactic that’s seen us not qualify in four years.
There was never an ambition to speculate to accumulate, keeping the Hoops ticking over and just being better than our Glasgow rivals was enough. Lawwell’s complacency has set this club back years and it’s not a new thing.
If you shoot for the absolute best and you don’t quite make it, you’re still in a good place overall. If you shoot just to be that bit better than the rest – this season is the end result.
Lawwell repeatedly penny pinching while his own wage shot through the roof is the legacy he appears to be leaving.
