Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell is “expected to step down” at the end of the season, according to the Football Insider.
The website claims that the 61-year-old’s future at Parkhead was already under threat before this week’s controversy surrounding the club’s trip to Dubai, which saw 14 senior players having to self-isolate on their return.
It is believed that majority shareholder Dermot Desmond was already considering making some changes to the club’s hierarchy, including installing one of his sons on the board.
The departure of Lawwell after 17 years would also place huge question marks over the future of manager Neil Lennon, with the club’s CEO having been a key supporter of the Irishman, despite poor results this season.
It remains to be seen whether Desmond will, in fact, go through, with his reported shakeup, but from the sound of things, it looks like there could be a changing of the guard at the club.
