Deila comments on 'great feeling' after winning first trophy as Celtic manager

Ronny Deila admitted that winning the Scottish League Cup final against Dundee United was a 'great feeling'.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila admitted to BBC Scotland that it was a great feeling to defeat Dundee United 2-0 in the Scottish League Cup final.

The Bhoys met the Terrors for the second time in seven days following last week's Scottish Cup clash, and this time the scene was set as the two sides went head to head at Hampden Park for the right to win the Scottish League Cup trophy.

Celtic went in to the game as hot favourites, and lived up to their billing with a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Kris Commons and James Forrest.

Their cause was helped by Sean Dillon's sending off, but Forrest missed a late penalty which would have added even more gloss to the scoreline.

Manager Deila spoke to BBC Scotland after the game, and admitted that it was a great feeling to win his first trophy as Celtic boss this afternoon.

"It's a great feeling, it was a good game against a good side but we were disciplined and created the chances to win," said the Norwegian. "It means a lot and hopefully this is just the start."

With Celtic on course to win the Scottish Premiership and clear favourites to win the Scottish Cup too, the Bhoys are chasing a historic treble - and when asked about the possibility of claiming all three trophies this season, Deila responded with by saying: "That's the dream."

The dream could become a reality for Celtic in the coming weeks, and fans will be hoping that their first trophy success under Deila can lead to more silverware not just this season but also in the future too.
