Ronny Deila gives his reaction to criticism from Celtic supporters

Celtic boss Ronny Deila has acknowledged that fans are entitled to their opinions on his management.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told the club's official Twitter account that he wants the fans to get behind the players amid unrest amongst the supporters.

Much of the focus this season has been on the Bhoys' torrid displays in Europe, as having crashed out of the Champions League after a play-off defeat to Malmo, Celtic were then dumped out of the Europa League in the group stage.

Deila has been clinging on to the fact that Celtic are top of the Scottish Premiership, and are expected to win a fifth straight league title this year.

However, a 2-1 home defeat to Motherwell on Saturday has piled the pressure on Norwegian boss Deila, with many Celtic fans calling for ex-Bhoys defender David Moyes to be appointed as his replacement.

In fact, some Celtic supporters have even started a permission to get Deila sacked - and it has almost 300 signatures right now, with a section of the fanbase clearly not happy right now.

Today, Deila was asked about the unhappy Celtic fans, and told the club's official Twitter account that he understands supporters will have their differing opinions.

He did though state that it's important they stick together and support the team through thick and thin, rather than start petitions for his exit.
