    Default Celtic Ownership

    Bored at work, so I did a little digging to find out who actually owns the club. My main takeaways are:

    1) Desmond only owns about 35% of Celtic - I thought it would be higher

    2) The top 5 shareholders own 72%

    3) Lawwell is the 11th largest shareholder, but owns less than 0.4%

    4) Christopher David Trainer, who Iíve never heard of, is the 3rd largest shareholder (10.5%)

    5) Investment management companies own % and make up 6 of the top 10 holders and own 24% total.

    Also, shares of Celtic have gone up about 80% since Rodgers took over.

    Ta man I never knew the figures, knew that the share price was well up but not by 80%

    The CL money makes us a lot stronger as a business. Which is why I'm amazed that Lawwell gets away with the austerity drive so much. Any other CEO of a company would have been punted by letting us down in that respect way too often.

    Completely agree - top line growth / brand recognition drives value in this business, not grinding out a small incremental margin
