Another Green Brigade protest at Celtic Park - this time it's Dom McKay's turn

The Green Brigade have unveiled a banner outside Celtic Park for the fourth successive day.

The prominent supporters’ group has aimed banners at Peter Lawwell, Iain Bankier and Dermot Desmond in previous days.

Now it’s incoming CEO Dominic McKay plastered across the front of their protest.

The North Curve Twitter account uploaded the photo to social media this afternoon.

It should be stressed that McKay hasn’t officially started his role as Chief Executive yet. That begins on July 1st.

However, he has been installed at Celtic Park in a transitional capacity in recent months. The handover started on 19th April after his exit from the Scottish Rugby Union.

So far, McKay hasn’t communicated with the wider support on the future of the club. It’s also unclear how involved he is in the process of appointing a new manager.

It’s likely he has been consulted at least on the incoming arrival of Ange Postecoglou, if not the man who has signed off of it.

Desmond and Lawwell have reported to have been heavily involved in the recruitment search.

Fans have been waiting a long time for a new permanent boss after Neil Lennon’s resignation.

The latest reports indicate that Postecoglou will arrive in Glasgow later this week to finalise his move from Yokohama F. Marinos. It’s said he has verbally agreed to take up the position at Celtic Park.

However, following the Eddie Howe saga, I’m not taking anything for granted until it is officially announced.

Presumably, further Green Brigade protests will follow in the coming days until they are satisfied a new manager is in the door.
