The Celtic boss has defended his goalkeeper after he was mistaken for one of the Italian side's goals.
And why wouldn't he, considering the shot stopper's importance to the Bhoys so far this term?
Celtic found themselves 2-0 and 3-2 down to Roberto Mancini's men on Thursday but showed heart and character in abundance to secure a first-leg draw against Inter.
Celtic's chances of progression to the last 16 of the Europa League are still stacked against them having conceded three away goals but Deila's men have every chance if they play like they did going forward during the first leg.
And the Bhoys boss was quick to defend 'unlucky' goalkeeper Gordon, who was at fault for one of Inter's goals.
As Deila rightly pointed out after the game, Celtic wouldn't be as far as they are now without some of the 32-year-old's fine saves throughout the campaign.

It's all to play for heading to Italy, then, and what a second leg we could have in store if Celtic and Inter put on a show like they did in Scotland...
