Lawrence Connolly thinks that a few moves being made in the Celtic boardroom are indicators of some major restructuring happening.

A recent report from Football Insider claimed that Dermot Desmond is set to put his son, 38-year-old Ross, into the boardroom at Celtic Park as he begins ‘plotting a golden new era’.

And speaking on the A Celtic State Of Mind podcast, Connolly thinks that these changes could just be the first of many changes to come at the club, and in his eyes these won’t come a minute too soon.

He said: “You’ve seen Ross Desmond getting moved into place. Surely that’s kind of the start of whatever actions are going to be taken. You know, I think we all agree the structure needs to be changed. If the manager’s on his way out, there’s no point changing the manager and keeping the same structure.”

Do you think Lennon and the Celtic board are to blame for the club's poor season?

TIF Thoughts on Connolly’s view over Celtic’s structure…

Connolly is right about the structure change, because it is clear to see that things are just not right at the club right now. Whether it be on the pitch with the enormous gap between them and Rangers, or off the pitch with their controversial trip to Dubai, this campaign has been nothing short of a disaster for the club.

You don’t just go from winning nine-in-a-row to being 20 points behind Rangers without there being something wrong, and if the whole thing needs to be ‘blown up’ and started all over again, then that’s exactly what needs to be done.

And at least they are reportedly starting the process now ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, as it gives them as much time as possible to get things in place to start again, rather than doing things frantically in the summer.
