Celtic: Ramon Vega tipped as possible Dominic McKay replacement -Celtic

Former Celtic centre-back Ramon Vega has been named as a possible contender to replace Dominic McKay as Parkhead CEO, The Herald report.  

The Lowdown: McKay’s exit

News of McKay’s Parkhead departure was confirmed on Friday, with the Hoops revealing it was down to personal reasons.

The former chief executive was only in the position for 72 days, with Michael Nicholson appointed on an initial temporary basis.

Nicholson is one of five contenders to land the job on a full-time basis in a report by The Herald’s Ewan Paton, and the sports reporter has thrown in a former Hoops player into the mix.

Vega’s combination of football and business knowledge could be the ‘perfect’ blend at Parkhead, according to Paton.

The reporter states that Vega has worked in an advisory role for a number of clubs across Europe.

Paton highlighted Edwin van der Sar as an example of a former player having a positive impact in the boardroom, with the ex-goalkeeper Ajax’s CEO.

The Verdict: Replacement ASAP?

With McKay’s exit confirmed last week, if Celtic want a new man in, it could be handy to get cracking as soon as possible.

Vega studied a business degree during his playing days and is still keeping an eye on football, so he could be a shrewd option to approach over the vacant position.

As Paton mentions, van der Sar has helped Ajax off the pitch when it comes to making profits on numerous players, so Vega could have a good balance when it comes to Ange Postecoglou and Dermot Desmond.
