Celtic: Penrice set for Hoops exit over 2020 blunder

Celtic: Penrice set for Hoops exit over 2020 blunder - Celtic

Celtic are making a number of off-field changes ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, and it seems as if another chief looks set to follow Peter Lawwell and Nick Hammond out of Parkhead.

According to a Hoops source, reported by Football Insider, Celtic recruitment chief Gary Penrice is in line for the exit after being the driving force for the failed Shane Duffy signing in the summer of 2020.

The 57-year-old, formerly of Everton, spearheaded a season-long loan deal for Duffy last summer, which, safe to say, hasn’t worked out.

Duffy has started just one of the club’s last nine Scottish Premiership fixtures, and it seems as if the Hoops are planning for life without the Irishman after much criticism.

It appears as if they’re also now getting ready for life without Penrice, who was named head of recruitment at Celtic Park 12 months ago.

Transfer Tavern take

Since Penrice was appointed as head of recruitment, it’s not only Duffy who has flopped.

The likes of Albian Ajeti and Vasilis Barkas, who the club paid big money for over the summer, have both struggled in their first season in Glasgow.

On that basis, with a major Hoops reshuffle going on, it makes perfect sense for the club to part ways with Penrice and bring in a new man picked out by Dominic McKay and Fergal Harkin, with the latter set to be appointed as the new director of football.
