Ronny Deila issues a message to Celtic's supporters after Aberdeen defeat

Celtic Stands

Celtic's lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table has been cut to three points.

Ronny Deila has sent a message to Celtic supporters, with frustrations rising around Parkhead after their latest defeat.

Celtic were beaten 2-1 by Aberdeen at Pittodrie last night, leaving them just three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

The Bhoys’ defeat comes just days after they were dumped out of the Scottish League cup by Ross County at the semi-final stage, and Deila is now under serious pressure.

However, the Norwegian boss has called for calm from the supporters, as he wants everyone at the club to pull in the same direction to ensure that they are successful this season.

Deila’s future at Celtic has been dominating the headlines for much of this week, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Already rumours are rife that Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill could be set to land the managerial role at Parkhead (as reported by the Scotsman), but Deila has refuted these claims.

Celtic’s next fixture comes against East Kilbride in the Scottish FA Cup, and only a compressive victory in that fixture will be enough to appease Bhoys' supporters' concerns.
