Ronny Deila reacts to Tom Rogic's 'excellent' performance for Celtic

Celtic U-20s

The Bhoys boss was thrilled with the 22-year-old's display.

Ronny Deila speaking to the media after a Celtic win - it's a feeling the Norwegian will no doubt be used to by now.

What he might have been more surprised by on Wednesday night, however, was exactly who he was discussing. Indeed, Deila feels Tom Rogic was 'excellent' during Celtic's 2-0 friendly win over Den Bosch, according to the club's official Twitter feed.

So confident did Deila sound, though, that he didn't seem surprised at all.

In fact, the Celtic boss says he has been expecting this kind of display from the 22-year-old ever since he was brought to Parkhead.

Deila was full of praise for several Bhoys and this was solid preparation for the Scottish champions' upcoming Champions League qualifiers.

But it was clear Rogic caught the eye of the manager especially and the Celtic boss was delighted with the midfielder's speed - something he feels will improve even further with more training.

Others on show against Den Bosch were debutant Dedryck Boyata, as well as returning Bhoy Liam Henderson. Deila is clearly taking the opportunity to watch absolutely everyone at his disposal.
