    Yes to a degree but on the whole could be the reason or partly to why McKay walked. What is worrying from that piece is Bankier saying that Nicholson was 'definitely a team player.' From that I'm reading that McKay was his own man but now they have their Yes man. Also the reports of Celtic being painfully slow in the transfer market and several people dealing in the transfer and a contradiction of each other regarding getting a deal done. No wonder we missed out on Toney and that one was worse than the John McGinn transfer * up.

    Bankier’s name keeps popping up. I know he is chairman but usually when things go wrong, the one that keeps talking is usually the one telling lies.

    Not a fan of most of his work, it tends to read well and sound realistic but a little digging under the surface of what he says often reveals it is simply his educated guess on what has happened and that he knows as little as the fans.

    He also does stuff for Football Insider which is never right about anything and some of his reporting on our financials for someone who is meant to be a financial guru is pretty inaccurate, such as transfer activity and profit from player trading etc.

    Essentially I don’t pay too much attention to what he says when it comes to reporting. If it was an opinion piece he comes across pretty well but as others have said he has no inside information or anything for his reporting.

    There’s a difference between the Athletic having a * relationship with Celtic (knocking back media access requests and media access to games) and him not having contacts within the club and around the first team set up.

    He clearly does if you listen to him on a Monday on the Agenda

    Each to their own mate. Just flagging that your initial statement isn’t true

    the board as we expected don't want to cede control to a new enlarged football backroom department and prefer to continue to micro manage things from their big chairs in the executive board suite, whilst swigging their brandy and laughing at all the pleb celtic fans who they have outmaneuvered again

    I think when a scandal like this occurs the chairman should be removed or should resign.

    It’s mental to me that the Twitter brigade are now trying to paint this as astute management, removing a CEO that didn’t know what he was doing.

    Excuse me, but who hired the CEO in the first place and why should they be allowed another go after wasting months and months of time?

    Bare minimum is the chairman should resign, but in upside down land they’ll somehow receive praise for this..

    * bizarre.

But if a certain player pops up at a certain price you do the * * deal other wise another team will

    Sounds like the opposite to me. It seems like all transfers have to be referred up the chain, Chief exec > Nicholson > Bankier > Desmond, in a process that takes weeks of emails going back and forward and causes us to miss out on targets and transfers to take ages to complete.

    McKay wasn't happy with this so he stopped referring transfers to Nicholson and took matters into his own hands, which caused the board to fall out with him.

    I don't blame him and there's clearly been a problem like that with our recruitment from well before he arrived.

    Whatever way you look at it, we're a shambles..

    We're lucky that Ange seems to have the strength of character to shield the players from the noise..

    But, if we don't get our act together I can't see him taking much nonsense, he'll be off..

    This seems to be what's happening at this club ....it's an utter joke and looks like DM walked because he wasn't prepared to be a fall guy for these absolute * above him.

    Quite rightly so....they are a cancer to our club

    Yet there’s * on here that won’t hear a word said against Lawwell or the board, you really need to question if they are true Celtic fans.

    Some dont want fan involvement in the running of the club either, surely to * this episode, with the lack of transparency and helplessness we all feel, has to act as a tipping point.. If you add the shambles of last season, how long can these * remain unaccountable.
