Deila: This is when my Celtic team are at their most dangerous

Celtic manager Ronny Deila believes that his side are at their best when they are positive with their attacking movement.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila believes that the club's 4-1 win over Kilmarnock on Wednesday night proved just how dangerous his side can be when they are on top of their game.

Celtic cruised past Killie with a stunning attacking display, which saw Leigh Griffiths claim a second-half hat-trick, and Deila wants them to continue putting in performances of this calibre for the rest of the season.

The Bhoys were quick to get the ball forward in midweek and Deila believes that when his side adopt this attacking approach, they are at their most threatening.

The Norwegian boss now wants Celtic to ensure that they maintain their standards, as they prepare to face Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup semi-finals on Sunday.

Celtic are Scotland's top scorers, but it is only more recently that they have found their attacking groove and started to show the attacking class that they possess in their ranks.

The Bhoys actually made a slow start under Deila, but they have gradually got used to his methods and are now in full flow.

It means that Inverness' task of stopping them looks to be a very difficult one, and Deila's men will look to ensure that they give their opponents no chance of causing an upset by further highlighting their threat in the final third of the field.
