Deila reveals ambitious target he's given to his Celtic players

Celtic manager Ronny Deila wants the club to win all of their home games over the rest of the season.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has revealed a confident and ambitious aim for the club in the Glasgow Evening Times.

The Norwegian has suggested that the Bhoys should be targeting victories in every single one of their home games over the rest of the season.

He’s explained the reason behind the aim relates to the environment and conditions, which allow his team to play at their very best.

“To play on good pitches is important for us. Having a good surface makes it easier for us to do what we want to do,” said Deila.

“We should win every game here at Celtic Park - and it should be frightening for the opponents to come here.”

If Celtic win all of their home games, they stand a very good chance of winning the league and doing the treble before the end of the season.

Momentum and confidence is everything to teams heading towards the final stages of a season and Celtic need to try and use it to their advantage.

Deila likes his team to keep the ball on the deck, control possession and the pace of a game and slowly chip away at the opposition, wearing them down and backing them into a tight spot.

That’s easier to do on a good surface with Parkhead one set of conditions they can control down to the finest detail.

Celtic do have a stature and reputation and good form at home is going to make opponents feel as though they are half beaten before a match has even got under way.
