FORMER Celtic super scout David Moss has left Huddersfield Town – only five months after moving from Parkhead.
The Yorkshireman was named as the newly-promoted club’s Head of Football Operations in the summer, replacing Stuart Webber who had moved to Norwich City.
Moss had previously spent seven years at Parkhead and was involved in bringing Victor Wanyama and Virgil van Dijk to Glasgow.
The 48-year-old former Partick Thistle and Falkirk midfielder is also credited with being instrumental in last summer’s capture of Moussa Dembele on a £500,000 development fee from Fulham.
However, despite the Premier League new boys’ early success, including their first win over Manchester United since 1952 and having brought in 13 players since Moss’s appointment, there has been a parting of the ways.
The club have confirmed in a statement on their official website that they “will now begin the search for a new Head of Football Operations”.
Celtic brought in Lee Congerton, a long-term ally of Brendan Rodgers, as their new Head of Recruitment.
