Kenny can't believe 'rotten' Celtic as new McKay details come to light

Paddy Kenny has slammed Celtic for their “poor” handling of the resignation of chief executive Dom McKay.

The former Republic of Ireland goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, slammed Hoops chiefs for their “bad communication”.

As quoted by the Daily Record on Saturday (September 11th), Postecoglou revealed he was “as surprised as anyone” at McKay’s departure.

Celtic confirmed on September 10 that the departed exec had resigned for “personal reasons” after only starting in the position in July.

The Athletic revealed on Sunday (September 12) that McKay had played a key role in bringing Postecolgou to the club.

The report also claims the departed exec felt undermined over his opinions on how to move Celtic forward.

McKay, who replaced Peter Lawswell in the role in July, lasted just 72 days in the job.

Kenny believes Postecoglou’s surprise is another example of “bad communication” at the club.

“Surely the manager needs to find out before these things go public,” he told Football Insider‘s Adam Williams.

“Yet again, it’s poor from Celtic if he’s found that out through the press.

“It just shows you how rotten the communication is at the club.

“Surely the club runs better when everyone’s on the same page and knows where they stand.”

Celtic are looking to prevent Old Firm rivals Rangers from sealing a second consecutive Scottish Premiership title, after the Ibrox club’s invincible triumph last term.

The Hoops trail their city rivals by three points after falling to two defeats in the first five league games.

Celtic also fell to defeat in their first Europa League group game last night, losing 4-3 away at Real Betis.
