Yesterday it was announced that Celtic great Neil Lennon would return to the club as manager following a successful interim tenure where he guided the club to its third domestic treble in as many years.

When Rodgers left, a number of key figures in his set up left with him, including assistant manager Chris Davies and coach Kolo Toure. The latest to make the switch to the Premier League side is former head of recruitment Lee Congerton.

Neil Francis Lennon (born 25 June 1971) is a Northern Irish football coach and former player who is the manager of Scottish Premiership club Celtic.

Congerton’s departure was widely celebrated by fans who had criticised his signing record during his time at Celtic. However, for a modern day football club to be entering a transfer window without a head of player recruitment, it would be expected the club would be left on the back foot.

Newly appointed Celtic manager Neil Lennon confirmed this was not the case. Confirming he had been working on laying the groundwork before knowing if he was going to be the one to carry out this work. Speaking at his official unveiling, Lennon said:

“There’s been work ongoing behind the scenes for the last few weeks, regardless of whether I was going to be here or not.”

Peter Lawwell was very relaxed when asked about a new head of recruitment coming into the club, stating:

“Now that Neil is in we can keep calm and not rush and make the wrong appointment.”

With the decision to take time to appoint a head of recruitment it is clear that Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board feel this will not hinder the performance of the club in the transfer market this summer.

With Champions League qualifiers little over a month away the work which has been put in to prepare for the transfer window will soon be put to the test and we will find out if Lawwell’s faith in Neil Lennon’s ability in the transfer market will be enough to see us progress through to the group stages of the Champions League.

Lennon needs a sizeable budget for squad overhaul says Mark Wilson.
Former Celtic defender Mark Wilson believes Neil Lennon will need a sizeable transfer budget this summer as he looks to invest and strengthen his squad. Despite winning an eighth consecutive Scottish Premiership title last season and completing the famous treble treble, Celtic look set for a busy summer of signings and departures ahead of the 2019/20 campaign. According to the Daily Record, former Hoops defender Wilson claims Lennon needs to strengthen in a number of positions this summer and believes he will need the full backing of the board in order to do so. “It’s going to take a chunk of cash. He needs centre halves, a striker, a right back, cover at left back.
