Celtic’s AGM yesterday featured the usual re-election of the directors at the club, and Celtic’s main shareholder Dermot Desmond was one of those up for election.
The main powerbroker at Celtic Park was unsurprisingly elected back onto the board.
According to the Daily Record, he received a total of 78,620,161 shareholders votes to put him back on the board… with only three votes against.
With spoiled papers and non-returns it equated to a massive 97% ‘yes’ majority vote for the Irishman, who didn’t attend the AGM.
The likes of Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Peter Lawwell did attend though, and Rodgers in particular was given a rousing reception from supporters.
The Northern Irishman guided Celtic to their first domestic treble since 2001 last season, and first unbeaten domestic campaign since the 1890s.
This season Rodgers’ side have broken another record, going 63 British domestic games unbeaten, which was sealed in the 4-0 victory over St Johnstone prior to the international break.
The games keep coming for the Hoops now, and they face a total of 13 matches between this Saturday and the winter break.
The Bhoys begin this run with a weekend trip to Ross County, followed by what looks like a very difficult visit to Paris to play PSG in their penultimate Champions League group stage game.
