Ronny Deila's 14-word message for Celtic fans about season

Celtic manager Ronny Deila is determined to achieve more success next season.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has made a very simple statement about next season, which will delight the club’s fans, as reported by the Glasgow Evening Times.

One of the main challenges facing any Celtic manager each summer is how to improve on the previous campaign.

Celtic are always under pressure to win silverware and Deila has revealed that he’s already moved on from the domestic double success he achieved, in his first season with the Bhoys.

“We will do everything we can to improve and to give everything for Celtic,” he said.

In terms of improvements, it’s difficult to judge what Celtic could do better than they managed last season.

Deila is likely to want to see greater discipline across his back four, which should enhance the resilience running through the team.

That won’t be easy with the realistic possibility that Virgil van Dijk could still leave and Dedryck Boyata settling into life at his new club.

There’s no real need to change the dynamic of the way the midfield plays, while Leigh Griffiths has already told the same newspaper that he’s looking to improve on his goal tally from last season.

It’s encouraging that the Norwegian doesn’t seem to be vaguely interested in any notion of complacency.

It could be easy for Deila to bask in the glory of what he’s just achieved but he just seems to want more and more, as he becomes addicted to hearing the ‘Ronny Roar’ on a weekly basis.
