CELTIC will hold their AGM on Wednesday morning at 11:30 am at Celtic Park.
This is where some formalities will take place with the reappointment of board members and a statement from Peter Lawwell about the state of the club as well as highlighting Celtic’s annual report which was made available three months ago.
However, any shareholder is free to attend the event and it is usually packed for the Q&A part of the meeting where shareholders can put concerns and questions to Peter Lawwell and Brendan Rodgers.
This is where things will get interesting.
There is no doubt the balance sheet will be pushed at shareholders throughout the meeting BUT it’s not about the bottom line for many.
There will no doubt be shareholders who will want to undertake some sort of inquest into what exactly happened this summer with regards to the transfer window.
After watching all the fans and players celebrate together in the most epic of ways as the bhoys won the double treble in May, by July things were starting to unravel and by August Celtic had missed out on several key targets and manager Brendan Rodgers voiced his displeasure at the board publicly.
There were players trying to push through moves with Moussa Dembele acting out in a ridiculous manner leaving Rodgers and the club no choice but to sell the Frenchman for a club record fee.
Over and above that, John McGinn’s failed transfer will be discussed and Peter Lawwell’s handling of the whole debacle.
While in retrospect fans are now happy with Christie getting in his chance and showing what he can do – it is still pertinent to cover what exactly went wrong to make sure lessons are learned.
It could be a slightly uncomfortable Q+A for the chief executive.
