Monday evening saw quite a remarkable event – 13,000 fans turned up to welcome our new manager. They started pouring through the turnstiles a full 2 hours before his unveiling such is the excitement at his appointment. Over the last while the board, and specifically Peter Lawwell have been under criticism for downsizing and lacking ambition. When Ronny Deila left they made it clear that their top target was to have Rodgers or Moyes as manager and to have him in place before the end of the month. Many doubted but they delivered. There may have been valid reasons to say to Lawwell & Co “could do better” but on this occasion they have delivered. Well done all.
At Celtic Underground we, along with a couple of other online Tims, were fortunate to get an invite to the press conference presenting Brendan to the media. The podcast will be up soon, but meantime, here’s some video.
