Brown has praised Celtic’s backroom staff in helping Ronny Deila overcome the pressures of the Celtic job.

Deila arrived at Parkhead last summer as something of an unknown, and club captain Brown has praised the work of his backroom staff to the official Celtic website.

The 25-year-old said: “He was under a lot of pressure coming to a big club but he has dealt with it unbelievably well. His backroom staff have helped him through thick and thin.”

Deila struggled in his opening weeks at Parkhead, as the Bhoys fell out of the Champions League in the qualification stage, as well as suffering a stuttering start to the Premiership campaign.

Admittedly, those problems have since been resolved, and the Norwegian coach has his team playing a stylish brand of attacking football, that has brought them a League Cup and league title in his debut season as head coach.

As well as that double, Celtic were within one game of reaching the Scottish Cup final, and it is hard to deny that this season has been a roaring success for Deila.

He may have entered the managerial role with little reputation behind him, but he has risen to the forefront of young management prospects due to his work this term, and he will be hoping to build on this success by taking the Champions League by storm next term.

The pressure of Celtic may have got to many managers in Deila’s situation after his poor start, but the Norwegian boss has proven himself this term, and Brown is laying much of that work down to his backroom staff, who have stuck with him even when the situation looked bleak.
