It appears as if Celtic have made no progress on their hunt for a new Director of Football if Alan Nixon’s recent social media post is anything to go by.
The Lowdown: Harkin to Hoops off
The Latest: Nixon’s DoF worry
Nixon, who writes for The Sun, has interacted with Celtic supporters regarding any off-field developments on a regular basis.
He was asked by a Hoops fan on Friday evening for any new updates at Parkhead, to which he said:
“Sorting out this Ange thing… as for a Director of Football… dear me.”
How many signings do Celtic need this summer?
The Verdict: Time is running out; Hoops to turn to Maloney?
By the looks of it, Celtic appear to be in a mess when it comes to appointing a DoF.
However, the Daily Record believe that former Hoops man Shaun Maloney has held initial talks about taking the position.
One thing is certain, though, and that is time is running out for Celtic to get their off-field issues sorted.
The transfer window opens on Wednesday and Celtic players will return for pre-season on June 17.
Should the manager and DoF roles remain vacant on those dates, it may well hinder the club’s hopes for a successful 2021/22 campaign.
Quite simply, the Hoops hierarchy need to turn things around quickly, or they risk turning a crucial summer for the club’s future into a hectic and unproductive one.
