Deila reveals the dangerous qualities he saw in Celtic last night

Celtic manager Ronny Deila was impressed by the way his team played against Dundee United last night.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila explained to the club’s website why he was impressed by the 4-0 win against Dundee United last night.

The Norwegian has pointed out the dangerous qualities for any opposition he saw in his team, which bode well as they chase a huge treble before the end of the season.

“I’m delighted about the game. I think we played at a very high tempo in big parts of the game and that makes it very hard to cope with us,” said Deila.

“We created a lot of chances and should have scored the second earlier, but when it did come the game opened up and we enjoyed playing.”

Celtic have plenty of pace and confidence behind them and they need to continue using that to their advantage across all competitions.

The intensity and pace of the side’s play is dangerous for opponents because it puts them on the back foot.

It makes them stand off of Celtic’s key players, which creates that little extra space that provides the opportunity for a cross to go into the box for an attacker to get onto the end of.

The chances being created are dangerous for the opposition because that’s a clear sign of the relentless pressure being built up by Deila’s side.

All in all, it’s difficult to find a fault in the way Celtic played last night and that bodes well looking forward to the next game and the return of the action, following the international break next weekend.
