In a significant development at Ibrox, former Celtic chief scout John Park has departed Rangers amid ongoing backroom changes, influenced heavily by their new boss Philippe Clement.

Park, who played a pivotal role in Celtic’s scouting achievements back in the day, notably identifying talents like Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk, and Fraser Forster, has left the Rangers 18 months into his tenure. This exit, reported by the Scottish Sun, marks a notable shift in the club’s scouting approach.

Park’s departure from Rangers, where he was brought in to enhance talent acquisition, coincides with a challenging period for the club in terms of transfers.

Celtic fans, recalling Park’s successful stint with The Hoops, have humorously suggested Park has gone in to deliberately sabotage their rivals.

This is another reset by Celtic’s rivals as they try to find a way to get closer to Celtic. The only time they have in nearly two decades is during the emphatic season where football was played like training ground games in front of zero fans.

Park’s tenure at Ibrox coincided with another treble for Celtic.

Well done John.
