It’s not news to Celtic fans. This season has been a disaster, partly in thanks, to the clubs atrocious transfer market dealings. With over £20m wasted this season and thousands of pounds per week washed down the drain in wages, the lack of care taken by the club with it’s finances has been nothing short of criminal.
With the new manager yet to be announced and a number of loan players, thankfully, heading back to their parent clubs at the end of the season, the rebuild will not only require careful planning, the supporters will also DEMAND careful spending of their season ticket money.
Speaking on the BBC Sportsound podcast, reporter Tom English has said that Celtic will invest heavily this summer and that owner Dermot Desmond will be out to save face after being embarrassed not only on the pitch, but with the boardroom decision making this year as well, “I think Celtic will throw millions at this. I think that Desmond is, you know he’d be embarrassed by the way things have have worked out for Celtic this season and I think Celtic are gonna throw millions at the right people.
Which area of the team requires the most investment?
“That’s open to the question because they have thrown millions in the last 18 months at players who are nowhere near the level required. I mean they have wasted fortunes in the transfer market. The decision making itself I think is the biggest problem. They’ve made bad decision after bad decision.”
Hopefully with the new CEO being allowed to bring in the new manager, Sporting Director AND Head of Recruitment the money being spent will be done so wisely because we are going to need to with the size of the overhaul required.
