After seeing John McGinn slip through their fingers Celtic fans are a bit irritated with how transfer dealings are going down at Celtic Park as of late.
The Celtic board were more reactive than pro-active in the McGinn transfer which was ultimately their downfall.
However, in general, Celtic fans are wondering what the scouting system is doing for Celtic at the moment and asking what head of recruitment Lee Congerton is doing to earn his keep. There has been a lack of quality coming in and the likes of Compper coming in to do nothing has got people asking questions.
So since Lee Congerton arrived we've signed :
Ntcham – Man City – scouted by Lawwell's son ?
Jonny Hayes – Aberdeen
Lewis Morgan – St Mirren
Jack Hendry – Dundee
So what exactly is he paid for ?

It does worry me that for all our scouting network’s cracked up to be we’re back talking to Izaguirre and Denayer about a comeback, and there’s talk that we’re also speaking to Patrick Roberts as well. Lee Congerton hasn’t exactly impressed since he arrived, has he?

Is Lee congerton the definition of stealing a wage?

Do we actually pay Lee Congerton a wage btw? Surely not. If you ask me for my opinion his recruitment skills are utter pish.

I'm not arguing but wtf does Mr. Lee Congerton do? Actually do?

Lee was brought in by Rodgers to head up recruitment and there seem to be more hits than misses.
With Celtic now looking at bringing in former players they already know about – it stands to reason some people would question what’s going on.
