Ronny Deila reacts to Mikael Lustig performance v Motherwell

The Celtic boss was full of praise for his defender.

Ronny Deila is hoping to get more displays like tonight's from Celtic star Mikael Lustig, according to the club's official Twitter account.

The Norwegian was delighted the with Celtic man's performance during the 4-0 win at Motherwell, as Lustig provided a good 50 per cent of his side's goals, striking twice in the second half.

The 28-year-old had been out injured for some time but has now returned to action for the Bhoys and only the harshest of critics could have demanded more from the defender upon his return.

And Celtic boss Deila was delighted that Lustig could contribute as much as he did - and is now looking forward to seeing more from the Swede.

Deila clearly rates the 28-year-old and, based on tonight's performance, that comes as no surprise.

Celtic's win takes them back to the top of the SPL - a point clear of Aberdeen with a game in hand over the Dons.
