Deila reacts to reaching impressive milestone at Celtic

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has reacted to reaching 50 games in charge with the Scottish club.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times commenting on reaching the milestone of 50 games in charge of the team.

The Norwegian has already won his first trophy at the club, with the Bhoys looking good for a treble before the end of the season.

He’s happy with the impact he’s made so far, but has stressed a clever response about his future potential with the Scottish giants.

“It has gone in very quickly. But, you know, we are playing so many games and, it seems, all of the time,” said Deila.

“This is a special moment, though, and a proud moment for me. Hopefully there are going to be many, many more.”

Deila has adjusted to the pressure of representing Celtic very quickly and has got the side playing an attractive brand of football.

They have already tasted success under his management and it’s encouraging that he doesn’t seem to be content with resting on that success.

He has to find ways of constantly challenging the side and pushing them to reinvent themselves in the face of different challenges.

He’s going to have some big calls to make in the summer with regards to switching things around, letting players go and identifying where he needs new players.

He can reflect on the season and his first year in charge at the end of the season when there are no more competitive fixtures to play, but until then it’s a case of full steam ahead.
