Deila's perfect message following Celtic's League Cup win

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has produced a clever and logical reaction following his team's League Cup victory.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times suggesting work has already started for the side, as they aim to win their second trophy of the season.

Deila was understandably delighted after the Bhoys lifted the League Cup with a 2-0 win against Dundee United, but has stressed the need for his players to quickly move on and add to their silverware collection.

“We are the biggest club in the league, and we should always be fighting for trophies. So I'm proud of the boys. They performed very well and we deserved to win the cup,” said the boss.

“Part one is completed. Now the aim is to move on to part two. We had to enjoy the evening, then get ready for training today.”

Part Two stars with a win in the club’s next game against Dundee United, who they play for a third consecutive match.

The side’s shared a 1-1 draw in the first version of their Scottish Cup clash and Deila will be keen for his team to progress and edge their way into the next round quickly.

They are the favourites for the game and to win the competition and are well placed in the Scottish Premiership.

Deila and has side have just shown that they can handle the pressure on the biggest of stages and now need to back up their League Cup success over the rest of the season.

Deila’s response to the League Cup win is perfect, because he’s not allowing his players to get distracted and is getting them focused on their next task, challenging them to prove how good they are all over again.
