Second Green Brigade protest banner in two days unveiled outside Celtic Park

The Green Brigade have unveiled another banner outside Celtic Park to protest the length of time the club has gone without a manager.

Chief Executive Peter Lawwell was the subject yesterday. It’s prominent shareholder Dermot Desmond on the banner today.

North Curve Celtic posted the image to Twitter earlier.

Presumably, this could end up being a daily thing. The club have yet to appoint a new manager since Neil Lennon resigned over 100 days ago.

However, Sky Sports have reported that Celtic have agreed on a compensation fee with Yokohama F. Marinos for manager Ange Postecoglou.

It’s unclear when the Greek-Australian will be arriving in Scotland to start training. There’s a UEFA issue to overcome, as well as a potential 10-day quarantine.

The entire situation seems quite complicated. Frankly, though, fans have had enough. The complacency on display from the club over the last 12 months has been shocking.

That’s especially true when you consider the level of financial backing they’ve had from supporters. Many feel disrespected, as The Celtic Trust explained on a podcast this week.

Peaceful protest is fine in my book if that’s the way some supporters feel.

The club are unlikely to listen, but how long can they go without an open and honest relationship with fans?

If Celtic truly want to move forward as a unified force with the support, they need to get their act together, and quickly. Sort it out.

In other news, Neil Lennon has spoken out against a ‘new breed’ of Celtic supporter.
