Celtic boss Deila comments on 'very interesting' young talent

The Bhoys coach was at the youth side's 6-1 win over Rangers.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila admits he is impressed by some of the 'very interesting' young talent at the club.

And the Norwegian, who watched Celtic's youth side beat Rangers 6-1 in midweek, says it is up to the coaching staff to find ways to take them to the top.

"I was at the game [against Rangers] and was very pleased," Odegaard told reporters.

"They had a very good attitude, team spirit, were good in transition and had the ball 80% of the game, so they had good possession. They scored six goals, so it was a very good performance but I think we need to work on the same things as the first team: in the last third of the pitch to open up defences more.

"Some of them [the youth team players] have played [in the first team] already so there is talent there and there is also some very young talent there: players born in 1996 and 1997. It was very interesting. It is up to us now to find the right way to bring them to the first team through good training."
