Celtic: Susan Whelan tipped as CEO contender -Celtic

Leicester City’s CEO Susan Whelan has been tipped as a possible replacement for Dominic McKay at Celtic, The Herald report.

The Lowdown: McKay departs

McKay’s tenure with the Hoops lasted just 72 days, with the club confirming his departure on Friday.

They cited personal reasons over his exit, however, it has since emerged that he may have jumped before he was pushed in regards to his Glasgow position.

Celtic are now seemingly on the search for McKay’s replacement, and a CEO at a Europa League side has been name-checked as a possible contender.

The Latest: Whelan one of five contenders

The Herald shared a story on Tuesday afternoon, naming five contenders who could replace McKay at Celtic Park.

One was former defender Ramon Vega, with the final name mentioned being that of Whelan.

She has worked alongside former Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers in recent years at the King Power, with the Northern Irishman labelling Whelan as ‘excellent’.

The Verdict: Could be a coup

Whelan is well-thought-of by Rodgers and has been with Leicester since 2010, with the Foxes going from strength to strength during that time.

The 58-year-old was born in Dublin, so owner Dermot Desmond could look to use his Irish connections, as he did for defender Liam Scales from Shamrock Rovers over the summer.

Whelan has also been described as a ‘good operator’, so, on that basis, bringing her to Parkhead could be seen as a major coup.
