Liverpool have identified Celtic's chief scout John Park as a leading candidate to replace Damien Comolli as director of football, it has been claimed.

Comolli was relieved of his duties last Thursday following a number of failed signings, and with the Reds faltering in the Premier League.

The Frenchman was responsible for bringing the likes of Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing to Anfield for exorbitant fees, and paid the price for the failings of the pitch of his numerous expensive acquisitions.

Despite the a widespread disdain for the position of director of football in the English game, Liverpool will appoint a successor to Comolli, and Park is the latest name to be linked with the vacant role.

According to The Scottish Sun, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have been impressed by the work Park has done during five years at Parkhead, with the former Hibs man having overseen the recruitment of numerous young talents.

Park also played a prominent role in securing the likes of Emilio Izaguirre, Ki Sung-Yueng, Victor Wanyama, Thomas Rogne and Beram Kayal, who were all relatively unknown before moving to Celtic.
