Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney raves about Ronny Deila's managerial ability

Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney has been hugely impressive in his first-team outings so far this season.

Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney has praised Ronny Deila's management style on the club's official website

Deila has come under pressure since Celtic's defeat to Molde in the Europa League last week, with many Bhoys supporters becoming frustrated with their side's struggles in European competition.

However, Tierney says that he is loving working with the Norwegian manager, who has shown his faith in youth on numerous occasions. 

“I have been absolutely delighted with the faith the manager has put in me. He has thrown me into some big games, and for him to do that with me being such a young age has been great.

“The manager is great with us all. He gives us an opportunity to train with the first-team and if we do well in the Under-20s games you’ll get you chance, so everyone is working hard to get theirs.”

Deila has entrusted Tierney to play in some huge matches for Celtic this season, with the youngster gaining experience in both European and domestic competition.

The 18-year-old has already accumulated six appearances over the course of the campaign so far, and he has coped with every challenge thrown at him.

Tierney has never looked out of his depth when given an opportunity, and looks to be one of the brightest prospects to have come through Celtic's famed youth academy in some time. 

Tierney starred in Celtic's most recent fixture, which they won 5-0 against Dundee United, and he will be hoping to keep his place in their starting line-up for the foreseeable future.
