Celtic manager Deila: If we play to our best, then we can beat anyone in Scotland

Celtic boss Ronny Deila has spoken highly of his team's quality.

Ronny Deila's start to life as Celtic manager did not go as planned, as the side failed to qualify for the group stage of the Championship League and made a slow opening to the Scottish Premiership season.

However, as the Norwegian boss has begun to settle at Parkhead results and performances have improved, with the side now occupying their familiar position at the top of the Scottish Premiership. 

It is a run of form which has raised confidence levels at the club, and Deila has summed up their current attitude by declaring that no side in Scotland can compete with them if they are at their best. 

"We know that we can win every game in the league if we’re at our best," Deila said to the club's official site.

"Now we have a good momentum and we have to keep going. We have to keep preparing well for every game and that will, hopefully, bring us more victories.

"We have to be playing at another level to get three points because it’s harder to play away than at home, but we are at another level now and I’m just enjoying every game and looking forward to Saturday’s game now.”

Celtic take on Motherwell this weekend and they will be looking to prove their manager correct in his bold prediction.

Deila has spoken of his desire to win every trophy available to his side this campaign and they have made a good start to that aim so far. 

The Bhoys have established a three point lead over their nearest rivals in the Scottish Premiership, Dundee United, and they will be hoping to extend that further this weekend. 

Celtic are unbeaten in the league since the start of October and it would be a major surprise if they were not to pick up the three points against Motherwell this weekend.
