Peter Lawwell has presided over one of the most successful periods in Celtic’s history. Over his time, Celtic became one of only five clubs in the world to win over 100 trophies in their history. A Quadruple Treble, Invincibles season, Champions League successes, Lawwell has presided over it all.
He has also watched over glorious failures. Failed league campaigns, capitulations in Europe and cup disappointments. The failures are there but fortunately the successes far outweigh the disappointments.
Lawwell has also overseen six different managerial changes in his time. Between them all they have overseen thirteen Scottish League Championships, nine Scottish Cups and seven League cups and out of all these managers, only one of them presided over a trophy less season.
Celtic’s domestic dominance over Lawwell’s stewardship has been unrivalled but for a spell, mainly at the beginning of his tenure, Celtic were a name feared across Europe as consistent Champions League participation, where Celtic negotiated the League stage on more than one occasion, the Celtic Park atmosphere became legendary amongst Europe’s elite players.
Today we take a look at the six managers that have brought success and, for want of a better word, shame over the last seventeen years to the famous Glasgow Celtic.
