Celtic: Kieran Devlin’s backroom staff opinion

Celtic: Kieran Devlin’s backroom staff opinion -Celtic

Celtic reporter Kieran Devlin has had his say on the possibility of any further backroom staff additions at Parkhead.

The Lowdown: McElhone arrival

Ange Postecoglou has been after additions to the sports science department since July, and the Hoops finally added to that area in the week by bringing in Anton McElhone.

The 40-year-old, a former fitness coach at Tottenham and New England Revolution, left Morton earlier this year following a caretaker stint as manager.

McElhone’s arrival was the first backroom addition under Postecoglou, and Devlin has given his view on any more joining him.

The Latest: Devlin’s comments

Devlin ran a Q&A on The Athletic ahead of Celtic’s League Cup quarter-final with Raith Rovers on Thursday.

He was asked by one fan if there would be any further backroom staff additions, and although he had no new information, he claimed a possible head of recruitment arrival would be an ‘important’ step.

“Hopefully, but I don’t have any info on that myself. Still don’t have a head of recruitment obviously, which would be important for ensuring the January signings actually fit what Postecoglou wants.”

The Verdict: Time is ticking

Celtic are also without a permanent CEO following Dominic McKay’s exit earlier this month, so the Hoops could do with bringing in more off-field members before the winter window.

A new CEO and head of recruitment through the door at Parkhead soon could help Postecoglou in regards to putting a January plan in place, but time is ticking.
