Celtic could bring John Park back to the club very soon.
Celtic are still going through changes after Brendan Rodgers' exit, and another one could be coming before the end of the season.
The Bhoys lost Rodgers to Leicester City last month, but moved quickly to bring back former boss Neil Lennon as his interim replacement.
Recent reports from The Telegraph have suggested that Rodgers also wants Celtic's under-fire recruitment chief Lee Congerton at Leicester, with Eduardo Macia leaving the Foxes.
That would leave Celtic needing a replacement, and the Express (15 March, page 61) reported that ex-Bhoys scout John Park could be returning to the club.
Park worked for the club between 2007 and 2016, and was often praised for helping bring the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Victor Wanyama to Parkhead.
Three years after his exit, Park could be heading back to Celtic as a replacement for Congerton, in a move which seems to be popular with Bhoys fans.
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to note that they hope the rumours are true, believing it would be the best possible news due to his previous stint with the club.
Others used the news to make a prediction about Lennon's future, believing that he is nailed-on for the permanent job if Park returns, given that they worked together for four years in the past.
If he does it probably indicates Neil Lennon being in for the long haul which i'm happy with.— Stephen (@Stiggers1888) March 15, 2019

Thought on John Park?— ShakeyBhoy (@ShakeyBhoy) March 16, 2019
My biggest concern isn't about the man John Park - but more the fact we're hiring a new Head Scout before we even know who our next manager is.
I think any new manager needs to have a big impact on the recruitment.
Imo everything points in NL's direction.
If true, best news I’ve heard in ages— Mark McGinley (@MarkMcGinley) March 15, 2019

I’m all for John Park coming back but to me this to me sounds as if the writing is on the wall for Neil Lennon coming back. John Park also brought us some great signings at brilliant prices but I hope this doesn’t mean we’re going to be looking at cheap options across the board.— Murray (@DMMacdonald96) March 15, 2019
John Park Returning to Celtic to replace Lee Congerton means that Lennon will be given the Job Full Time..— JP (@JPbhoy2) March 15, 2019
