Celtic icon Stiliyan Petrov was recently asked if he would consider becoming Dominic McKay’s replacement at Parkhead, The Scottish Sun report.
The Lowdown: McKay’s exit
McKay left the club earlier this month, just 72 days after arriving through the door at Celtic Park.
Former Celtic defender Ramon Vega reportedly wants to take over from McKay, something Petrov is aware of, and the former midfielder has had his say on possibly taking over.
Vega as Celtic CEO?
Yes, why not!
No, need someone with more experience!
The Latest: Petrov’s comments
The Scottish Sun shared a story on Wednesday, where Petrov was quizzed on numerous Celtic-related topics.
One of which was on the club’s CEO vacancy, to which he was asked if he would consider the role.
The report claims that Petrov smiled, and said:
“I have studied but they have a lot of candidates for it. I saw Ramon Vega put himself forward.
“They have to make a decision because you see how important this position is. You see it at other clubs.
“There needs to be people looking at the short, medium and long term, because if you don’t have a plan then you don’t have a direction.
“I hope they can sort things out very quickly. There are some other issues that have to be addressed and you need that balance to have success.”
The Verdict: Celtic need to take action
McKay’s departure was confirmed almost two weeks ago now, so Celtic could do with bringing in his permanent replacement as soon as possible.
Michael Nicholson is in interim charge, but with the winter transfer window fast approaching, securing a full-time replacement could help Ange Postecoglou when it comes to planning for January.
It doesn’t look as if that man will be Petrov, but it may well turn out to be Vega, who is seemingly interested in the position.
