It is the board. 

It starts with the board alright but the problems in no way end there.

I don't think the Duffy situation is a key decision. Its barely a decision. I don't have a huge amount of faith in Kenny based on what I have seen so far but with three other centre backs playing regularly to a decent standard in the Premier League it would be asking for trouble for an already under pressure manager to select Duffy in his current form.

March is fast approaching and this is a key decision for Kenny.
Love Duffy but if the form is still as bad as all that, and Kenny has better options (O'Shea, Egan, Clarke...all PL regulars and playing reasonably well) for the centre two, yet picks Shane out in Belgrade, that's a big worry.

Absolutely,  but his form is in such a tailspin now that it is a long, long way back for him to what he was 2/3 seasons ago. He is not getting any younger and a relegation battle with Forest (if that ends up being a way out for him this season) is going to involve plenty of pressure too.

From a purely Irish perspective, we cannot afford to be playing him when in this form. 
Just aswell we have no need for him till March eh .........
Just because it's tradition does not make it right

It is the board. 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I read that on Twitter not sure who credible his info is. - where is he getting his info from?

Celtic fans have been ranting and raving about anything and everything in fairness.

He is decent, he covers Celtic for the Athletic.

I watched the full 90 mins - it was a complete non eventful game.

Duffy didn't do a whole lot and wasn't really involved in the game. He did have a couple of sloppy tackles/challenges in the box but overall his performance was a bit meh, just like the rest of the Celtic players.

One thing that I have noticed is that he has cut the long balls out of the game. All his passes now are short to a midfielder, (a Celtic one!)

So you didnt watch the game and now your on here to correct what I watched.

Come back to me after you watch it. He was an abomination. He gave the ball away virtually every time he had it.
I didn’t watch the game but why did you say it was one of the worst centre half performances that you would see? He’s terrible on the ball and everyone knows that but worst centre half performance that ended with a clean sheet? Cop yourself on with the exaggerations

Right, you didnt watch it and are trying to correct what I and many others witnessed today.

Thank you though for your opinion on a performance you didnt watch. You've educated me, I shouldn't bother watching games to formulate opinions anymore. 
If your forming opinions like that then it’s probably better off that you don’t watch football anyway. Imagine if he scored an own goal or they even lost the gameLOL
