A summer clear out at Celtic moved closer today with confirmation that Eduardo Macia is leaving his job as Head of Recruitment at Leicester City.
Since Brendan Rodgers left Celtic just over two weeks ago, with three trusted coaches, rumours have been rife that Lee Congerton will also make his way to the King Power Stadium.
Congerton arrived at Celtic nine months after Rodgers was appointed and appears to be on a different type of contract, one agreed with Collingwood Legal.
The signings of the former Sunderland and Hamburg scout have been heavily criticised by Celtic supporters with a major rebuilding job expected in the summer.
With Macia leaving Leicester it would see the logical step to bring in Congerton as the local paper, The Mercury, hinted at:
Brendan Rodgers will be make his voice heard in the process to find Eduardo Macia’s replacement as Leicester City’s head of recruitment.
City announced on Thursday that Macia, long subject to speculation surrounding his future, would be leaving the club this week.
A search for his successor has already begun with City linked to Celtic’s transfer chief Lee Congerton, a long-time colleague of Rodgers dating back to their days at Chelsea.
Leicester City can confirm that Eduardo Macià will be leaving his position as the Club’s Head of Recruitment on 15 March.
