The Bhoys returned to winning ways in the Scottish Premiership with a 2-0 triumph over County at Celtic Park.
Leigh Griffiths put the Hoops in the lead in first-half injury time with his 30th goal of the season.
Dedryck Boyata headed home a Stuart Armstrong cross in the 57th minute to wrap up the three points for the Glasgow giants.
Deila was pleased with the final result, but he admitted that his team’s passing could have been better.
"The boys worked really hard and we created a lot of chances, although the passing could have been better,” Deila told BBC Radio Scotland.
"But it was good to get the three points and we will kick on from this. We are not thinking of Aberdeen, but we are very excited to get this win at Celtic Park."
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Celtic Park, hosts Celtic had 58% of the possession, took 14 shots of which just four were on target, and won nine corners.
Visitors County had 42% of the possession, took six shots of which only one was on target, and earned one corner.
