Celtic chief executive Dom McKay has stood down from his position for personal reasons.
McKay left his position as Scottish Rugby’s chief operating officer to replace Peter Lawwell, at the beginning of July.
McKay told Celtic’s official website: “I’d like to thank the board and everyone at Celtic for their support and wish everyone at Celtic every success for the future.”
Celtic chairman Ian Bankier said: “We thank Dom for his efforts on behalf of the club and everyone wishes Dom and his family very well for the future.”
Celtic’s director of legal and football affairs Michael Nicholson, who has been with the club since 2013, has been appointed to the board of Celtic plc as acting chief executive officer.
Bankier said: “It has been my pleasure to work closely with Michael for more than eight years now.
“Having been at the heart of the senior executive and reporting to the board, he has a solid grip on how to achieve our immediate and future objectives.
“Michael is an absolute team player and he will lead an experienced and talented team of executives and colleagues at Celtic.”
