Former Celtic director Brian Dempsey believes Dermot Desmond wouldn’t stand in the way of a potential fan takeover.
It hasn’t exactly been the most memorable of seasons for the Hoops, with the club’s bid for ten Scottish Premiership titles in as many years ended by rivals Rangers.
Celtic fan takeover?
And Dempsey thinks Desmond would be open to selling his shares, urging fans to come together and make Celtic ‘a people’s club again’.
Who do you want the next Celtic boss to be?
“I don’t believe there’s any question that Dermot Desmond, assuming he got the right money for his shares, is a man who would stand in the way of Celtic’s expansion.
“So it’s down to the supporters to come together again, sit down at the table with Dermot, produce their plans and offer to buy him and the others out, making Celtic a people’s club again.”
Transfer Tavern take
Plenty of Celtic fans made their strong feelings known regarding Lawwell, Lennon and Desmond prior to the New Year, with two of the three set to be missing from the club’s 2021/22 plans.
It would certainly be interesting to see if a supporter resurgence at board level would be possible. Raising the funds to engage in talks with Desmond could be a struggle, but one of the main benefits, should fans take control, would more than likely be communication at all levels.
