Celtic: Alan Nixon drops worrying Director of Football hint

Celtic: Alan Nixon drops worrying Director of Football hint - Celtic

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

Fergal Harkin was the name heavily linked with the newly created role in recent months, with reports back in March going as far as saying a move was 90% done.

However, just like with Eddie Howe, a move to Celtic Park is now off. Harkin, City’s Football Partnerships Manager, is no longer looking to leave the Etihad, despite being a ‘massive’ Hoops fan.

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.”

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.
