The Green Brigade unveil new protest banner at Celtic Park

The Green Brigade have unveiled a new protest banner at Celtic Park this afternoon.

The club continues to stall on appointing a new manager.

Neil Lennon resigned as the first-team boss 100 days ago.

Reports indicate the club are in advanced talks with the relatively unknown Ange Postecoglou after a protracted pursuit of Eddie Howe.

Postecoglou’s potential appointment has received a mixed response from supporters, despite journalists from Japan and Australia being bullish on his ability.

This latest banner is less about him though and more about the inaction of the club.

North Curve Celtic posted the image to Twitter this afternoon with the Green Brigade logo.

A clear protest of outgoing chief executive Peter Lawwell, the group clearly want the club to get on with the business of appointing a new manager.

Pre-season training is just a couple of weeks away. Celtic’s first European qualifiers come in July.

Preparations are already massively behind schedule. When you consider the job needed to be done on the recruitment side too, an appointment can’t come quickly enough.

It’s not the first time that The Green Brigade have visited the stadium this season to protest the actions of the club.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t proven effective in changing the club’s direction. However, it does capture the mood of many in the support.

The onus is on Celtic getting their act together here and rebuilding the relationship with fans.

In other news, Kevin Muscat doesn’t feel like a good fit for Celtic.
