Celtic media round-up: Beram Kayal admits it was tough leaving

Kayal admits it was hard to leave

Beram Kayal admits that it was a hard decision to leave Celtic for Brighton and Hove Albion because he felt he had given his all for the Scottish club. 

Kayal fell out of favour at Parkhead under Ronny Deila's stewardship, but he still found it a wrench to depart. 

“To leave Celtic was the same as leaving Maccabi Haifa," he told the Brighton Argus. "I felt part of the family at every club I’ve played for, as I always give 100 percent in every training session and every game.

“It was hard for me to leave Maccabi and now Celtic as well, but I want to come and feel part of the Brighton and Hove Albion family.”

Price tag for Armstrong reported

Celtic will have to pay Dundee United over £2 million if they are to tempt them into selling star man Stuart Armstrong, according to the Daily Record.

Armstrong has been a long-term target of the Bhoys, but all their attempts to sign him so far have been blocked.

The Bhoys have reportedly offered as much as £1.5 million for the attacker so far, but Dundee United are apparently looking for a bigger bid than that. 

Nicholas on Deila

Celtic legend Charlie Nicholas believes that a defeat to Rangers this weekend could cost Ronny Deila his job.

Although the Norweigan has made a decent start to life at Parkhead, Nicholas believes that the Old Firm clash is so important a defeat could turn the fans against Deila. 

"Ronny Deila’s entire reputation rests on this game,” Nicholas told the Daily Express

“If Celtic were to lose, there would be a lot of fans who’d turn against him. For him, this match could be a job-breaker.
