Ronny Deila gives his simple reaction to Celtic's disastrous defeat to Malmo

Ronny Deila

Ronny Deila admitted Celtic just weren't good enough to beat Malmo tonight.

Celtic's Champions League dream is over for another year following a disastrous 2-0 defeat away at Malmo this evening, handing the Bhoys a 4-3 aggregate defeat.

Celtic were coasting at 3-1 up in the first leg, but a late Jo Inge Berget goal meant that it was all to play for in Sweden - and it was Malmo who came out on top.

Goals from Markus Rosenberg and Felipe Carvalho handed Malmo the 2-0 victory, sending Celtic out of the competition before the group stage for the second year in a row.

Manager Ronny Deila will now be feeling the pressure after two failed play-off campaigns in a row, and the dismal showing in Sweden tonight will have done him no favours.

Speaking to the Celtic official Twitter account after the game, Deila have a short reaction to the result - admitting that Celtic simply weren't good enough.

The Bhoys now have to focus on their league campaign, but a Europa League challenge is on the cards for Deila, just as it was last season.

It's not the continental competition Celtic wanted, but it's what they have after a nightmare in Sweden - and Deila simply has to try and take the Bhoys as far as he can in the Europa League this season.
