According to the Current Bun. John Kennedy is in the running for DOF. If this is true i really despair with Celtic's thought process. C'mon Celtic put us out our misery i have never been so disconnected with OUR club since the Kelly's.

what makes you feel being against john Kennedy as DOF and disconnected with the club because he might be DOF. Brendan Rodgers wanted him as DOF would you have been against it if he was appointed DOF in Rodgers term at the request of Rodgers. genuine questions mate.

I think it would be a good move to make Kennedy sporting director. A whole new management team will be coming in so Kennedy can be the link between them and the fans. He knows all about Celtic and what is demanded by the fans. Would be able to advise Howe on things he should and shouldn’t do when you’re Celtic manager.

DOF
To me is someone who oversees the transfer policy. Identifies player's, looks at players that the scouts recommend. What has John Kennedy done to suggest he's capable of this role.
He can't even get a tune out the Current squad since taking over but all of a sudden he can control Celtic footballing future.
Maybe i feel disconnected with Celtic due to not getting to games. The lack of information from our custodians doesn't sit well with me. It feels it's the support and the board two different entities. Same as the Kelly/ White regime.
It's all opinions if people are happy to hand one of the biggest jobs at the club to a unproven candidate fair enough.
Listen to the podcast and its always get the best person that we can afford for each role. IS JOHN KENNEDY THAT PERSON.

29 Apr 2021 10:09:42
Kennedy should never be anywhere that role. He has a job with us based on sympathy the sooner he is gone the better.

29 Apr 2021 10:10:39
Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly does a sporting director do?

29 Apr 2021 10:19:49
Can someone explain this fascination with Kennedy as I don't get it? He has been accommodated at Celtic since his injury and this season after being part of a failed and flawed management team, continued the same mediocrity as caretaker and led us out meekly of the Cup.

29 Apr 2021 10:21:24
I would rather have someone who has experience in the DOF role.
It’s going to be a massive job because of all the changes throughout the club.

29 Apr 2021 11:12:04
I believe Kennedy was a scout for Celtic at one point so he may tick some of the boxes. Making a massive assumption he would want the role though. Surely he would want a managers position now? The time is right for him to move on with potential to come back in the future.

A Sporting Director or 'Director of Football' or whatever you want to call it primarily acts as an intermediary between the manager and the Board.
In many ways, he helps to take some pressure off the manager by taking over some of the day-to-day chores that don't directly relate to on-pitch action.
Kennedy could fulfil that role very well in my opinion. HH.

Auf, I think that's unfair on JK. Guardiola or Klopp wouldn't have got a tune out of our first team this season if the rumours about the wantaways is true. They are key players and when they down tools the rest haven't really got much chance to pick it up.
We should indeed always try to get the best person for any vacancy and no-one knows Celtic like JK does. Don't judge him on this season, for the reason mentioned, and remember that when Rodgers was here JK was being hailed as a key man by the fans. He and BR were good together, so good in fact that Rodgers tried to take him to Leicester. I'm not saying he should definitely get the DOF role but if he did then I wouldn't be concerned.
We're all frustrated and fed up with this season so I understand what you're saying but trust me, all will come good soon enough. HH.

Why wait this long to give it to Kennedy (if reports are true) . Has someone else knocked us back?

He could have still been given caretaker role and fans told he’s our future DOF.

My hope for a modern thinking intense counter pressing thinking DOF/ manager are slowly fading day by day.

29 Apr 2021 12:58:26
What I really despair about is that people still believe what's written in the Sun.

29 Apr 2021 13:24:12
Mark76 or any other rag .

That's my only hope it's untrue that it was in that rag. Seen it on my Twitter feed and seeing its a rumour site i posted.

29 Apr 2021 16:31:37
The fascination with Kennedy is that Rodgers rated him and that's enough for some fans.

29 Apr 2021 17:37:39
JK is highly rated by many important and experienced people in football.
It would be a long and futile search to find anyone with negative comments to say about him. HH.

29 Apr 2021 18:26:55
Reminds me of that saying, if you get a reputation as an early riser, you can sleep till noon.

29 Apr 2021 21:04:41
aindoh, that concept may work in a situation where results are not closely monitored but it doesn't apply in a competitive environment. Guaranteed. HH.

Lennedy as D. O F. overseeing football operations, Holy Mother of God!
No experience, no track record and yes, he should be judged on this season - clueless, but if BR says he could do it that's good enough for some.
Celtic have more than repaid him, see ya John.

30 Apr 2021 09:33:01
Anyone saying kennedy only has a job out of sympathy is cluelesss.

30 Apr 2021 10:52:55
Well said Kev. HH.
