Celtic & Rangers latest: Deila on area of Bhoys' game he's unhappy with

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Deila unhappy with defending

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has slammed his side's defending during their match with Dundee United this weekend. 

The Bhoys lost 2-1 to United on Saturday and Deila was less than impressed with his team's backline during the contest. 

"I'm annoyed about the way we defended," he said to the Belfast Telegraph. "It is easy to keep the ball, push them out - don't let them go in and open up the goal. We did that twice and then you see what happens."

Guidetti could be dropped

John Guidetti could be dropped by Celtic after failing to hit the back of the net in any of the side's last four matches.

Guidetti has made a huge initial impression at Parkhead since joining, but his struggles in front of goal more recently could see him sat on the substitutes' bench, Deila has hinted. 

“There is one thing you have to remember with John – he hasn’t played football for two years before he came here. He started very well and now he has had a little dip," Deila said to the Daily Record.

"Would leaving him out for a bit help? We will see. But I don’t think he would think that was the right option. We have to pick the team we think is the best for every game.”

Ferguson on McCoist's departure

Barry Ferguson says that he found it very sad to hear that Ally McCoist was leaving Rangers. 

The manager has stepped down from his role and been placed on gardening leave by the Light Blues and Ferguson was less than impressed by the decision. 

"For me it’s the saddest day so far in the soap opera that is Rangers," Ferguson wrote in the Daily Record.

"The news that my friend Ally McCoist is no longer going to be in the Ibrox dugout broke late last night and it was hard to take in."
