According to reports this afternoon, Celtic’s head of recruitment Nicky Hammond is clinging to his job amidst the ongoing furore surrounding Celtic’s collapse this term.
If this is true, then it would present an even bigger detachment from reality.
Of all the things that have gone on this term, Nicky Hammond has a place in issues but he’s not the overriding factor why we haven’t shown up.
He’s not the reason for not playing David Turnbull and Ismailia Soro until it was essentially too late. He’s not the reason why the club went to Dubai against common sense and put 13 players in isolation.

There doesn’t have to be a scapegoat, there just has to be an investigation into what went wrong this season and the guilty parties be held accountable.
It’s been a major failure at board and dressing room level. Complacency and bad decision making on and off the park.
Our recruitment, in hindsight doesn’t look good, Hammond will have to hold his hands up but the man green lighting everything at Celtic Park — Peter Lawwell just look inward.
