Deila on where Celtic's squad is stronger than most clubs in Europe

Ronny Deila has spoken about the strong bond in Celtic's squad.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told the Daily Record that the bond his Bhoys team have with each other is stronger than at most other clubs across Europe.

Deila says that Celtic's players have become very close during his time in charge and there is a strong sense of camaraderie within the group.

It means that they are now a closely knit unit and Deila says if anyone fails to buy into that ethos, then they will be forced to leave Parkhead.

"The team is getting better, individuals are getting better," he said. "If you are not hanging on there then your time at Celtic will be very short. As a group you can see the enjoyment as they score goals together, as they go for dinner together, there is a really good mood when they are away in hotels.

“I am really pleased with the connection the boys have and the friendship they have. I don’t think that is a normal thing among clubs in Europe.”

The strong team spirit that Deila has praised has been on full display recently, with the Bhoys making rapid improvements throughout the season.

Celtic have got progressively stronger and they now have the opportunity to claim the domestic treble, as a result of the high level of their performances.

The Bhoys have already won the League Cup, they are in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup and they currently top the Scottish Premiership.

It means that they are in with a good chance of lifting every trophy still available to them this season, and that would be a remarkable achievement in what is Deila's first season in charge at Parkhead.
