    I don’t know where you’re going with this ? or assuming I’m getting at something I’m not? :56:

    The last time Lennon wanted a bums off seats type player we signed Derk. He’s literally just said that’s the type he wants again. Hopefully this time it’s more successful...

    I don’t think it’ll be a centre half he’s suggesting, for the record.

    I’m saying Virgil Van Dijk ended up that type of player for us mate. Nothing else than that.

    Certainly got me off my seat when run the length of the pitch against St Johnstone and slotted it away :56:

    Plus the free kicks but he definitely wasn’t the profile of an ‘x factor winger’

    I personally think/hope he’s just won the lottery with Shved. A guy that doesn’t look anything like what his fee would suggest and that’s before he’s even kicked a baw. Guy was tearing up Ukraine last season.

    For a start getting rid of compper ,lustig,ralston,jozo,hendry,hayes,biton and build a defence then look about improvements in midfield and attack

    Just read this on the bbc website, it's our director of football peter lawwell, who is the 'we' deciding on players?

    "We realise the squad needs freshened and it probably needs strengthened. We've actually been working on it since February in terms of options and making enquiries. We know the direction we want to go in in particular positions."

    'Squad needs freshened and Probably needs strengthened' that * lawwell talks some * ,the first team definitely needs strengthened with at least 5 or 6 players .the squad is bloated like * and don't need anybody else unable to make their way into the team

    This is both my favourite and most frustrating time of being a Celtic fan..

    The anticipation, the excitement, the hope, the disappointment, the realisation we have enough quality but with more investment another level could have been reached...

    We need a new first choice RB and a back up LB, we also need a CB (unless Benkovic comes back on loan). Those are the priorities for me.

    The noises seem to be that it will be Lustig again next season. That would be a mistake. Folk saying he's still mobile are missing the point, he's lost the acceleration a good FB needs as part of their basic toolkit.

    It's not quite the question the OP asked; but I'm not sure how to answer that. Rodgers left us in a difficult position by bringing in Congerton. Park was competent, far, far more so than Congerton; but the position of head of scouting is so important to a club like us that we really need to try for the very best we can and that means not rushing it.

    The way we are run now, the head scout position is almost as important as the manager's.
