Season 2020/21 : Challenging season ahead.
With no Champions League revenues this season, and with Covid-19 meaning no fans as yet attending Celtic Park, the financial situation for this current Season 2020/21 will be even more challenging.
From Season 2021/22 there will be two Scottish clubs in the qualifying rounds for UEFA Champions League.
The Celtic PLC Board have to be incredibly careful that the Doomsday Scenario doesn’t arrive whereby we are overtaken both on and off the park.
Dermot Desmond will not want to go down in history as the PLC Board Leader of men who lost the ten.
Football history will provide judgement on Dermot Desmond and the PLC Board based on what happens this season.
If you fancy helping us out by penning something we would be more than happy to publish.
