Johansen explains what needs to happen for Celtic to dominate for years

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has explained that if Ronny Deila is backed, he will win multiple trophies at the club.

Celtic star Stefan Johansen has explained to the Herald what he feels needs to happen for the club to multiple pieces of silverware under Ronny Deila.

The Bhoys stand a good chance of success on various fronts before the end of this season and Johansen feels Ronny Deila needs to be backed and allowed to go about his business without any pressure from officials at the club.

“If they give him time and let him do his thing, he will win a lot of trophies for Celtic. To be honest, I wasn't worried at all at the start. I don't think he cared about it either,” said Johansen.

“That's football. One day you are a hero, the next you aren't. Things can change and I don't think the gaffer cared too much about it at the start.”

Celtic were inconsistent at the start of this season as Deila began his career at the club, which is understandable.

It was always going to take a little bit of time for him to get the team playing to his vision and philosophy, which are common challenges for any manager coming into a new club.

The important thing is Deila has found a way to get the side playing good football.

They are well placed in the league and have great chances of winning the Scottish League and FA Cups before the end of the campaign.

The officials at the club deserve credit for backing him through a difficult start and he should now excel in charge at Parkhead over the next couple of seasons.
