Celtic supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a report emerged predicting Peter Lawwell will stay on with the Hoops in some capacity next season. 

The current CEO of the giants has already confirmed that he will step down from his current position at the end of the campaign, with Dominic McKay already confirmed as his replacement.

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

However, English has stated his belief that Lawwell will remain at in 2021/22 and act as a consultant to the less experienced McKay.

Speaking on BBC Sportsound recently (as reported by 67HailHail), the journalist said: “I think he’ going to be around in a capacity as a consultant. I don’t know this, but I think he’ll be there as a sounding . Consultant to the CEO.”

Although Celtic’s winning run of nine consecutive league titles happened under his reign, many fans blame him, at least in part, for poor transfer dealings and a huge drop-off in on-pitch performances this season, and it’s clear they don’t want him to remain at the club next season.

“If Tom English says it then it must be true. If it was the case he was staying then nothing will change.”

“Utterly nonsense.”

“Disaster #Celtic fans have been (& continue to be) BETRAYED by the current board. Ditch every damn one of them What we’ve seen since Brendan left (& even b4 that which probably led to him leaving) has been CATASTROPHIC”

“He should be banned for life”

@CelticCRab19671

“No no no”

@chismary1234

Do you think Lawwell should have any role at Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

A big rebuild is needed at Celtic next season after falling 23 points behind fierce rivals Rangers, and the supporters evidently want a fresh start with Lawwell out of the picture.
