Celtic have done well, with Ronny Deila signing some superb players.
Celtic have been superb this season under Ronny Deila and a large part of the side’s form and success relates to the investments which have been made since he took control at Parkhead.
Celtic have signed some superb players on permanent and loan deals, which have allowed the Bhoys to get into a good position as they look to assault all of their opponents in pursuit of a treble.
Here are our ratings for the Celtic signings over the course of 2014/2015 who have featured most prominently for Ronny Deila.
Craig Gordon – 7
Gordon has found himself at Celtic after a frustrating period of his career where he’s suffered with routine injuries.
Gordon is an experienced and reliable option at the back of the team, who has added organisation and leadership to the defence.
He makes big saves at key times during matches and is one of the first names down on the team sheet every week.
Jason Denayer – 7
The Manchester City owned defender has done everything that his parent club would have been hoping for this season.
He has the pace and agility to cope with the high defensive line that Celtic often play and he’s a smart player in possession.
For someone who is just 19-years-old, he’s looked mature and seems to have only grown stronger with the pressure and frequency of big games.
Stefan Scepovic – 5
Scepovic has struggled to live up to the expectation at Celtic after a summer move from Sporting Gijon.
He’s made just three starts in the Premiership and has been challenged by Deila to show improvements away from the first team to force his way back into the side.
He’s been a regular in match day squads but seems to be a little way off a start at the moment and two goals in the league is a tally he would have been hoping would be far higher.
John Guidetti – 6
The striker has been one of the most frustrating figures for Celtic fans all season.
The loan star has the potential and ability to be the number one striker at the club but he’s failed to show that on a consistent basis this season.
He has 14 goals in all competitions for the Bhoys this season, but his insistence on focusing on a future away from the club constantly threatens to undo all of the good work he puts together.
Gary Mackay-Steven – 6
One of the club’s main signings in the winter and someone who has had a very good initial impact at Parkhead.
He’s fitted in well with the philosophy that Deila is trying to create at Celtic, with a solid passing accuracy of around 83%.
His challenge will be to ensure consistency over the rest of the season with the aim of becoming one of the club’s best attacking players.
Stuart Armstrong – 6
Armstrong signed from Dundee United along with GMS and faced a difficult challenge with Stefan Johansen slotting in as the main number ten behind the main striker.
Armstrong already has his first goal for the club and has already made an impact in the Europa League and looks to have the longevity to be a positive option for Deila over a number of years.
