Celtic set for meeting with fan group after interim financial results - will review status finally be known?

Celtic are set to meet with representatives from The Celtic Trust later this month to discuss ongoing issues.

The Trust held a members meeting at the end of January and, as they regularly do, planned to relay the outcomes of that to the club.

Peter Lawwell’s retirement announcement didn’t impact those plans but the meeting has now been pushed back to 17th February.

That’s due to the club publishing interim financial results next week, which will obviously be relevant to anything discussed by the Trust and the club.

An update on the Trust website said: “Yesterday, we were advised that Celtic would like to postpone the meeting till the following week (17/2/2021) due to the fact that the interim results will be announced next week and that this information would be useful to have in advance of the meeting.

“Members will be receiving a mailing in the next few days which bring them fully up to date with Trust activities and indicate the timings of future meetings (activists and general) and we will report back to members on the outcome of the meeting with Celtic immediately after the 17th.”

The Celtic Trust will air fan grievances

It comes as Celtic’s general policy of silence about ongoing problems continues.

Despite promising a review of Neil Lennon’s position as manager ‘in the new year’, there has been no indication or update on that from the Bhoys board.

The club’s Supporter Liason Officer has even been trying to get an answer on it without success.

The Celtic Trust have done a good job of communicating the content of meetings with the club in the past, as we’ve covered previously.

It seems likely we’ll at least get an indication of what’s going on with the club’s ongoing supporter relationship stance and the mythical review, if not the outcomes themselves.

We look forward to hearing about what Celtic have to say.
