Celtic & Rangers latest: Deila gets Lennon backing; Macleod insists 'Gers' dressing room is a happy place

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Lennon backs Deila

Ronny Deila may have made a poor start to life as Celtic manager, but the man who he replaced believes that the Norwegian is right for the job.

Neil Lennon saw Deila take on his former position this summer, after his departure from Parkhead, and he believes that, given time, the 39-year-old will get things right.

“Once Ronny Deila finds his feet and gets a bit of time to implement what he does then the club will be very successful," he said to the Scotsman. "They’re the dominant team in Scotland, and I’m pretty sure the club have picked the right man to take Celtic forward.”

Zyro planning Scotland's downfall

Celtic fans will know all about the dangers of Michael Zyro, after he starred against them in the Champions League, and he has warned Scotland that he plans to do the same to them when he takes them on with Poland tonight.

Zyro scored in both legs of Celtic controversial Champions League tie with Legia Warsaw, where the Polish side fielding an ineligible player saw the Bhoys progress, and the midfielder is aiming to get on the scoresheet again tonight.

"It’s important for Poland to beat Scotland but that is for the national team to progress and not just for me," he said to the Daily Record. "We really want three points to end this round of qualifiers.

“I can take confidence from my performances against Celtic going into this game but football is different."

Macleod says Rangers in a better place

Lewis Macleod believes that the mood in the Rangers camp is happier after a win against Livingston.

The 'Gers have made a poor start to the season, but a win in their last fixture has lifted spirits, according to their most promising prospect.

"The dressing room was much happier [after the Livingston game] than it was in the last week," Macleod said to the Evening Times. "Everyone was disappointed with the performance and result [against Hibs]. We were just glad to get back to winning ways, and to score myself."
