Deila on Celtic improvements

Ronny Deila has said that Celtic's improvements over recent months have made them a team that he is proud to manage. 

The increased tempo to the Bhoys' play has seen their results improve considerably of late and Deila is clearly satisfied by the progression that he has overseen. 

"I think we can see the difference now in the team from two or three months ago," he said to the Glasgow Evening Times.

"There is more energy, and it looks like a team I am proud of."

Collins on Inter threat

Celtic first-team coach John Collins has warned of Inter Milan's threat from set-pieces ahead of the Bhoys' Europa League match against the Italian giants on Thursday night. 

Inter have not been at their best this season and coach Roberto Mancini is still trying to undo the negativity from Walter Mazzarri's reign, but Collins still feels that the Nerazzurri can pose a problem to Celtic if they allow their concentration levels to dip. 

“Technically, they are very good and they are very dangerous at set-pieces – that is where one in three of their goals come from, so we will have to on our toes from free-kicks and corners," he said to the club's official site

“Generally, they are well organised and disciplined. The most important thing is we play with discipline."

Johansen on Celtic improvements

Stefan Johansen says that Celtic are far more confident in possession nowadays, as they continue to make progress under Ronny Deila's stewardship. 

The Scottish champions had struggled at the start of the Norwegian's reign, but they look an impressive outfit now and Johansen was full of praise for the team. 

"We're more confident on the ball now, we have more possession and create more chances these days," he told the Daily Record.

"We keep on winning and the team spirit is very good."
