Scott Brown: What hasn't changed since Neil Lennon left Celtic

Celtic captain Scott Brown has given his assessment on an important aspect of the club's current team.

Celtic captain Scott Brown told the Glasgow Evening Times what he feels hasn’t changed from the Neil Lennon era since Ronny Deila became the club’s manager.

Brown has suggested that the team spirit and confidence running through the side is as strong as it ever has been as the Bhoys look to end the season with a bang before a well deserved break over the summer.

“The pressure is always there but that is the mark of a good team. To be able to handle that is what it is all about,” he said.

“The spirit in the team was great under Neil and it is great under Ronny. We feel that we have it in us to go and get into the Champions League but you have to be ready for these games because they are so important for us.”

Celtic will be a very confident team every season because they are without doubt the biggest club in Scotland, have greater resources than most of their rivals and enjoy a passionate and large support base.

Deila deserves credit for maintain the spirit running through the side, by recognising it’s one area of the club’s infrastructure, which he didn’t need to tweak.

Celtic did get off to a slow start early in the season, but the Norwegian resisted the temptation to completely change everything Neil Lennon has worked to setup before his move to Botlon Wanderers.

There is now belief in Deila’s methods because of the success, which has been achieved since he came in and that ensures that Celtic are going to start next season as confident as they have been for a number of years.
