Celtic CEO Peter Lovell thanks fans for their support
Following the alleged arson attack on his home, Peter Lovell, manager of traditional Scottish club Celtic FC, thanked fans for their support.
“It was a devastating attack on me and my family, the consequences of which will be with us for a very long time,” Lowell said in a statement from the association. Lovell said he also wanted to thank you for the thousands of helpful messages he received from Celtic fans and people around the world.
Several cars and parts of Lowell’s home south of Glasgow caught fire on Wednesday night. According to police, footage from surveillance cameras showed how a man threw fire accelerators on several cars before going up in flames. So investigators started arson and asked the public for information.
The manager and his family were able to be safe, but were “extremely stunned and stunned” according to the club. According to rescuers, there were no casualties.
Lowell, 61, is stepping down as managing director at the end of this season after 17 years. Fans had recently been disappointed as the club lost the championship race against arch-rivals Rangers. This would have been the tenth consecutive title for Celtic. Lowell’s successor will be Dominic McKay, the former director of the Scottish Rugby Federation.
