Celtic interim boss John Kennedy has given an update on any sort of on-goings at the club after the departure of Nicky Hammond yesterday, insisting that things are still very much moving behind the scenes as we look to appoint a new manager.

Speaking ahead of this weekends return to Scottish Cup action against Falkirk, as quoted by the Daily Record, Kennedy insisted that even with the recent departures of a few key men within the backroom of the club, the processes are still very much ongoing preparing for the season ahead.

When asked about any sort of developments ahead of this summers widow after Hammond’s resignation, he replied;

“Recruitment was just one facet of Nick’s job.

“He was very much across the football spectrum in terms of different areas. But we still have our recruitment team, we still have a chief scout and ahead of recruitment.

“All the processes are still there.

“The heads of departments, Peter, Neil, Nick, are changing but underneath that the work still goes on and the board will decide what is the best way to move forward.

“That is above me, board level, they will make the decisions but behind the scenes, things will very much keep moving forward the way they do.”

The announcement of Hammond’s exit didn’t come as much of a surprise to many supporters after the speculation that the Englishman has faced over the past few months.

With the up-and-coming rebuild that the club is set to undergo, it feels like a real clear out is the way we are looking to go and bring in a whole host of new names.

Hopefully, supporters are provided with another update or announcement at some point soon as we come closer to the summer transfer window which could be crucial.
