Deila: What I want to see from Celtic for rest of season

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has explained what he expects from his team over their remaining games.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times explaining what he wants to see from his team between now and the end of the season.

The Bhoys are in great shape to secure the Scottish Premiership title and are the favourites to win the Scottish Cup, which would mean a treble for the Norwegian in his first season at the club.

Rather than allowing his side to relax and become a little complacent, he’s revealed exactly what he wants to see from the team over the rest of the campaign.

“What I'm looking for between now and the end of the season is performances and results,” said the boss.

“We've worked so hard now for so many months to get to this position, and we have to really enjoy it.”

“This is a big, big opportunity. We're going into some very important games, and I have real confidence in my players.”

Deila is quite right to point out the effort, which has been put in by the side throughout the season cannot be wasted.

The time to reflect and enjoy the success of the side will come in the summer and Deila will always stress the official line that the Bhoys have only won one trophy until that officially changes.

It’s a clever comment for Deila to make because it keeps all of his players in key positions on their toes.

If they take their eye off the ball and don’t fully commit to all games, they could quickly find themselves out of the team, facing a difficult challenge to fight their way back in.

Kilmarnock stand in the way of Celtic and their next piece of silverware and it’s business as usual ahead of the game.
