Former Celtic striker Scott McDonald says the club are going through ‘worrying times’, speaking to BBC Sportsound.

The ex-top scorer believes the managerial hysteria is taking away the glory of a potential treble treble.

He doesn’t know whether it’s a good idea to stick to tried and trusted with Neil Lennon.

Alternatively, do the club go for someone with a great CV but hasn’t experienced the Scottish football goldfish bowl?


However, Scott needs to remember there will be a resolution in the near future.

Scott McDonald’s fears for Celtic

Skippy is fretting over who the club should go for to seal nine and ten-in-a-row.

Due to its massive importance, he is unsure which avenue the club should go down for a new gaffer.

He told BBC Sportsound: “If he’s [Lennon] to go on and you’re asking him to make three or four changes within that squad, I’d be extremely concerned as a Celtic supporter.

“Or do they take the gamble and bring someone else in, someone who’s got a decent CV to come in and take the club forward in a different direction?


“The type of culture embedded in Scottish football, the goldfish bowl mentality, can they deal with the pressure if it doesn’t quite go their way?”

Scott McDonald unsure of who leads Celtic

The Australian also holds fears over who is running the club with the departure of Lee Congerton.

The Hoops must bring in players in the summer as the whole squad will need a lift.

However, McDonald worries that there is no one at the upper hierarchy doing the job of identifying.

He said: “Don’t get me wrong, Lee will have done his homework and spoken to Neil and John Kennedy as well. But it’s worrying times.

“Who’s actually in charge at the very top and who’s directing the club?”

Celtic begin pre-season at the end of next month with current loanees away and free agents gone.

The Hoops need three or four first team players – lets hope they’re being looked upon now.
