Ronny Deila has slammed Celtic ace Kris Commons for his behaviour

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told The Scottish Sun that Kris Commons' actions against Molde were 'unacceptable' and hinted that disciplinary proceedings could follow.

The Bhoys endured a disastrous night in Norway as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Molde, leaving their Europa League hopes in tatters.

Goals from Ola Kamara, Vegard Forren and Mohamed Elyounoussi handed Molde all three points, though Kris Commons did score what proved to be a consolation for the Bhoys.

Playmaker Commons may have scored, but his night certainly ended on a sour note. Having been substituted in the 76th minute, Commons proceeded to have a touchline row with Celtic assistant manager John Collins, such was his anger at being taken off.

Commons' actions only added to a torrid return to Norway for manager Deila, and the Bhoys boss has now reacted to Commons' behaviour.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun after the game, Deila admitted  that Commons was unacceptable, and claimed that further action will be taken - though he said that any disciplinary action won't be for the sake of punishing the player, but to show him that what he did won't be tolerated.

"That’s unacceptable. We are a team," said Deila. "I understand players being disappointed at being taken off. But to show it in that way, it’s not the way it should happen at Celtic. We’re one team and it’s not about one player. That was very disrespectful to everyone else."

"Everything is about the team, not one player. So we will have to talk about that. It’s not about punishing people, it’s about understanding how we need to react and behave. Of course, he was irritated he was being taken off and that is OK sometimes. But you do it in a better way than he did tonight. We will move on and come back stronger on Sunday," he added.
