Ronny Deila makes bizarre claims about Celtic's season

The Celtic boss seems to be under the impression his side are performing well...

Celtic boss Ronny Deila says he can 'see progress' and that his side are still on course for a treble... following a 0-0 draw with Ross County.

The Bhoys produced an awful performance going forward against the side who now sit bottom of the SPL, with many fans recently expressing their complete bewilderment at Deila's tactics and recent team selections.

But the Celtic boss has spoken of progress and says he 'loves' his job right now. The interview looks to have taken place before the Ross County draw - which only reinforces the idea that Deila isn't quite with it at present.

“You have to look at the fact that I am a manager in his first year at a club, so we can get so much better results,” Deila told reporters, as quoted by the Scotsman. “I hope I’ll be breaking some records of my own with the team after three or four years.

"That’s what we’re aiming for but transition takes time and I’m happy with the way that transition is going. I see progress and the goal is still to get the treble.

“I feel controlled. We are a unit, the staff, the players and the club and we are going in the right direction. I am really enjoying it. I feel like every day we go to work we are going to get better and that is a good feeling. I love it and I can handle it and that is good.”

Indeed, it seems Deila might be getting a little carried away - and blinding himself to what sort of performances his Celtic side are actually producing.
