NICKY HAMMOND looks to be the man set to lead Celtic into a new decade in terms of recruitment. As 2020 approaches the Englishman is set to be appointed the full time position and with that carry the expectations that brings.

These expectations not just from his employers but the support who know all too well how a bad head scout can cause you headaches.

Hammond proved over the summer he could identifies targets and help get those deals over the line. Many Celtic fans believed it was our best transfer window in quite some time which has inevitably led to Hammond getting the gig full time if SunSport are correct.

Lee Congerton was a disaster in the role – appointed by Brendan Rodgers, the scout couldn’t get to grips with his role and how he had to find diamonds in the rough. Celtic continually had poor recruitment under Rodgers – lucky for us Brendan was a great man manager and got more out of the team in front of him.

As Hammond gets set to take on the role, we’re confident after his trial period he believes he understands his remit and can deliver.
