Celtic fans were watching on in envy on Tuesday night after Ajax knocked Real Madrid out of the UEFA Champions League.

Fans couldn’t help find comparisons between the sizes of the two clubs both in terms of fanbase and revenue after they shocked Europe by mounting a comeback win against the trophy holders on their own patch.

The Dutch side apparently have a wage bill below Celtic’s, with total revenue also below what the Hoops have generated in recent years.

It’s led some to think that the Hoops should be doing a lot better on the European stage and should be looking to mirror the behind the scenes set-up found at the Eredivisie giants.

Whatever happens at Celtic in the wake of Brendan Rodgers departure, one thing is clear – we need continuity. We need an overarching view of the direction the club is taken and it can’t all fall upon Peter Lawwell’s shoulders.

We need a proper Director of Football and an ambitious and innovative coach who can get the best out of our academy prospects.

That of course is far easier to write than it is to actually do.

These fans are looking for Celtic to try and emulate Ajax’s European success in recent years, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts this week…
