“We do have a rebuilding job on the recruitment side – there is no question of that. We are trying to do that and Nick is working to rebuild the recruitment department” Lennon said, as reported by the Evening Times.

“Nick will hopefully be in permanently and hopefully he can build his own ideas there. That’s what we are looking for him to do.”

Lennon’s admission that the club are failing on the recruitment side will be welcomed by the Hoops support. It shows that senior figures at the club are aware that improvements have to be made.

Only time will tell how successful Nick Hammond is should he gets the recruitment job permanently. However, should he be as successful as the likes of John Park, then he will have done a very good job for the Hoops.

It is about time that Celtic changed their recruitment process, fans should be pleased with Lennon’s comments.
