Ronny Deila’s amusing response when asked how Celtic have prepared for St Johnstone clash

Celtic

Celtic will take on St Johnstone at home in the Scottish Premiership tomorrow.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has revealed to reporters what his players have been working on since the victory over Aberdeen at the weekend.

The Bhoys returned to winning ways on Sunday when they eased past second-placed Aberdeen at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.

The Glasgow giants headed into Sunday’s game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan in Italy in the second leg of the Europa League round-of-32.

Aberdeen were expected to provide Celtic with a tough challenge, but Deila brushed them aside and are now on course to winning the league title.

Celtic return to action tomorrow when they face St Johnstone at Celtic Park, and ahead of the game, Deila told reporters what the players have been working on for the past two days.

"What we have worked on is lying on the couch more!” the Norwegian said in a press conference on Tuesday, as reported by Celtic’s official Twitter account. “The players were very tired after the game and Aberdeen were fresh.”

Deila was joking, of course, but his comments show the Celtic players are getting tied due to a busy schedule.

Until last week, Celtic were involved in the Europa League, which meant an extra game in midweek. The Hoops are also alive in the Scottish Cup, which mean extra games.

However, Celtic have a strong squad with some quality players, and they will be determined to maintain their challenge for the Premiership title.
