    I really * hope so mate, but the support did * all after the treatment of last year so I doubt we'll see any change.

    I'm sure there will be protests etc. but those are fairly easily ignored as long as it's not around renewal time. We'll see token change and rumours of signings to come and that will be enough to satisfy most supporters, meanwhile the club will continue its consistent regression.

    McKay is nothing but an empty suit.

    Apart from during the Celts for Change campaign I honestly can't think of a time when the fans have been so angry and disillusioned as they are now. Yes we were angry last season at loosing the ten but it's more evident now due to the board not even trying to make amends for fecking up the ten and apparently not giving a flying *

    We’ve brought a rugby guy into run a football club.

    We welcomed it at the time because we were so desperate for Lawwell to go.

    We also believed McKay would be focussed on the commercial side, fan engagement, restructure etc. and that we would recruit a DOF to handle scouting, signings etc.

    But that didn’t materialise and we just look a mess, experiencing the same issues on and off the field.

    Boards fault again. Why an earth did they think it was a good idea to give the chair of Rugby Union the position of running the club under current circumstances

    He’s running it exactly how they want him to. They’ll be delighted with how he’s doing and he’ll be rewarded with a cracking bonus.

    Indeed.

    He is a close associate of Ian Bankier. Do people actually think he’s here to ‘modernise’ Celtic, as he claims?

    Four months in and what has he done? We still don’t even have a club doctor, our manager - whose only prior experience in Europe is a third division club - has aired his surprise at our football staff set up, transfers take an age, club PR is a shambles. The list goes on.

    McKay never allowed us to play the waiting game with season ticket deadlines - so let’s not afford him the same time. Pile the pressure on next weekend.

    He’s had a disaster of a first couple of months.

    He’s also been silent since his wee media event.

    He's totally out of his depth going by the first couple of months so far what he said at his press conference was hopeful but nothing has happened since then .
    There's still no head of recruitment in the building and transfers are still taking ages to get over the line .
    The club is a shambles at the moment from board room to back room team and players .
    Desmond doesn't seem to give a * that the club is in this state and he is the one who carries the can for this mess and him and the rest of the board need to go now or we will see another nine in a row soon but it will the zombies getting it .
    I would say to every supporter to turn up at the protest next week and show this * board we want them out or this * show will continue in the coming years and our decline is on them after being so far ahead of everyone else and it's neglect and unforgivable from the board it has come to this .

    It's going to take more than nine players to fix this as the depth of squad is shocking for a club our size .
    I fear if this * board don't get the players in soon before the transfer window closes I could see the manager walking away and don't blame him .

    He along with the rest of the board should be hunted.

    Total root and branch clear-out of the club is required.

    In fairness, trying to get any real quality player into what looks like a complete omni-shambles of a club at the moment is probably a * nightmare. We've put ourselves into a horrible Catch 22 position now...

    Truth is that we can't afford the big transfers, the big wages, don't have the big attraction of CL, don't have the big crowd - and if we did they'd quite rightly be baying, and right now it looks like we'd be asking them to do a lot more heavy lifting for a lot less compensation than they'd get elsewhere. Add on that a blind, deaf monkey could see that they're gonna get kicked and dragged around with * all protection... Not quite as easy a job as some think to get the kind of players we want.

    He needs to hire an experienced and modern DoF. He may have had full sport and free reign at the SRU, but here it's opposite. No major support and only seering red eyes from puffed out gammon faces watching him, making sure he doesn't spent more than his daily allowance. He needs to hire his own people, whilst getting Ange's folk in. Goodwill is thinning out on Dom very quickly.

    Apologies if it's been highlighted earlier.

    He looked really worried just after the full time whistle yesterday, cameras staying on him for a few seconds.

    Either he's been duped, or he is totally out of his depth. Not the best of starts, regardless.

    Where have you gone big man? You were all over the press when Ange got to the UK, a wee presser, 1 miced up got the fans interested again, oh aye they started buying into it, shirt sales season ticket sales on the up since then you’ve * given in, show your worth or just * off, another cancer within our club sooking it dry for your own personal gain.

    The fact we haven't got a DoF/Head of recruitment whatever you want to call it is shocking Mckay would be ideal if his sole focus was on the commercial side he should have very very little to do with transfers

    McKay is probably in a dark, dark room the now with his head in his hands. The guy has inherited a club that is rotting profusely but since he officially started on the first of July, he’s no covered himself in glory whatsoever.

    He talked a good game at the press conference and the buzzwords were modernise and world-class. So far we’ve seen absolutely nothing of the sort. As I said, he has inherited a sinking ship but it still doesn’t absolve him of all the blame. The fact we’ve only brought in one defender when we need a whole new back line including the keeper is nothing short of a disgrace. His words are proving to be very hollow.
