Derek Whyte has a piece of advice for Ronny Deila

Derek Whyte suggests that Celtic manager Ronny Deila should pick the brains of John Collins.

Derek Whyte has told The Scottish Sun that Celtic manager Ronny Deila should take advice from his number two John Collins.

“I don’t know Ronny but he seems like a nice guy,” the former Celtic defender told The Scottish Sun. “He comes across well. There will be tough periods ahead and he should look to John for guidance.

"John knows Celtic inside out and the demands involved. So Ronny has to look to use that to his advantage.”

Collins knows Celtic inside out, and Deila should be looking to get advice from the former Scotland international midfielder in the coming weeks.

Deila is under pressure to get positive results and play good football, and the Norwegian needs all the help that he can get.

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 62 points from 27 matches.

The Hoops are six points clear of Aberdeen, who are currently second in the standings and are their main title challengers.

The Glasgow giants will return to action on Wednesday evening when they take on Dundee at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic are favourites to win the league title this season, and they will also be keen on clinching the Scottish Cup.

The Bhoys will take on Greenock Morton in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.
