Frank McAvennie is concerned about who is overseeing this summer’s overhaul at Celtic and slammed the club’s recent recruitment. 

The Hoops icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, wants there to be an overhaul in the scouting department as well as on the pitch.

Celtic are yet to announce any summer signings and are still without a permanent manager.

On Wednesday, Football Insider revealed Celtic are free to appoint Ange Postecoglou as their new manager after agreeing compensation with his club Yokohama F. Marinos.

He will no doubt want to make some of his own signings as the Hoops try to recover from finishing 25 points behind Rangers.

Last season’s signing Albian Ajeti and loan arrival Shane Duffy drew plenty of criticism for their poor performances.

McAvennie doesn’t want anyone associated with last season’s recruitment involved as the club looks to rebuild.

“A lot of players need to come in,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I’m really worried about the time. I don’t want the people who bought players last year and the year before to buy anyone else.

“The recruitment has been awful for a while now. That’s something that has gone under the radar for me.

“We can talk about this overhaul that’s needed but will the same people be buying these new players? 

“I hope not because that won’t fix anything. This new guy needs to sort it out as soon as he get in.”

David Turnbull is the only permanent arrival from last season who can claim to have had a successful 2020/21.

He is set to travel to this summer’s European Championship with Scotland.
