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

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

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.
