As Sky Sports covered at the time, McKay began working as CEO at Celtic Park as recently as April 19th.

He worked alongside Peter Lawwell for a brief spell before he himself left his role as CEO.

McKay was responsible for hiring Ange Postecoglou, and helped oversee a successful transfer window in which 11 new faces arrived.

McKay’s rein saw Kyogo Furuhashi, Liam Scales, James McCarthy, Jota, Josip Juranovic, Joe Hart, Carl Starfelt, Liel Abada, Liam Shaw, Georgios Giakoumakis and Osaze Urhoghide arrive in Glasgow.

Now, the vacancy is back after a short period of McKay holding the reigns.
