Unhappy requisitioners spells trouble for Celtic Board

A few hours ago I had a conversation with a leading Resolution 12 requisitioner.

I think it is fair to say that he is one of the main movers behind this issue.

Today he raised the issue from the floor of the AGM.

Although he had a prepared script of questions for the top table it was when he spoke from the heart that the room responded.

He told me that Peter Lawwell had stated that the requisitioners were “happy” with what the club was doing on the issue.

The Resolution 12 chap immediately retorted “Well I’m not happy Peter!”

He told me that this got a supportive response from the room, if not from the top table.

My guy reminded me today that two years ago UEFA opened the door for Celtic FC to bring this issue directly to them.

The Resolution 12 folk have correspondence from Nyon to prove that assertion and I have seen the missive myself.

Regular readers here will know that it is my contention that the Celtic Board would rather not address the issues contained within Resolution 12.

Moreover, it is entirely reasonable to deduce that someone in a position of authority at Celtic does not want this matter to be pursued to its conclusion.

Of course, a board of directors are meant to act, at all times, in the best interests of the shareholders.

For the avoidance of doubt, Celtic suffered a substantial opportunity cost in season 2011-2012 by being denied a crack at the UEFA Champions League.

It is now five years since Resolution 12 was brought to the AGM.

Five years…
