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.
