Celtic | The McCann Takeover | David Low & Matt McGlone Interview

From the Streets To the Boardroom | How the Rebels Won | Part 3

In todays environment it is easy to forget that just 20 years ago Celtic were in dire financial straits. Fergus McCann saved Glasgow Celtic from the brink of financial ruin and as the ongoing economic maelstrom engulfs the many tentacled leviathan in the South of the city, the man known as ‘the Bunnet’ is growing in stature amongst Celtic fans. His prudence was not universally popular during his tenure but time and hindsight can do wonders for a man’s reputation and McCann is now (rightly) held in the highest esteem amongst the huge majority of Celtic fans.

The unexpected and dramatic journey which led to McCann’s takeover has many facets and to document this incredible period in Celtic’s history 90MinuteCynic spoke to two of the most significant players in that story; David Low, financial advisor – the man who realised a takeover was possible and helped make that takeover a reality and Matt McGlone, the man on the street who made his voice heard when he founded ‘Celts for Change’ the fan group who voiced the supporters frustrations and put pressure on the incumbent board to walk away.
