Former Celtic winger Joe Miller backs Ronny Deila and tells the players to give 100%

Celtic have dropped points in their last two league fixtures.

Celtic dropped points in their hunt for the Scottish Premiership title again last night as they drew 0-0 with Dundee.

The latest setback has seen more calls for Norwegian boss Ronny Deila to go, as Aberdeen continue to keep up the hunt. Now the players and manager have reportedly held a meeting to discuss the poor results in their past two fixtures.

However one former Celtic player is not willing to pin the blame on the Celtic gaffer.

Joe Miller played for Celtic for six years between 1987 and 1993 and he believes that the buck stops with the players at the end of the day.

Speaking to the BBC Miller stated:

"Those talks usually come about when a team's struggling.

"He [Deila] picks a team and they should be going out there giving 100%. I don't think they are...

"They're trying to do something about it and be pro-active. Sometimes you can air that and get everything off your chest.

"But the bottom line is that players have got to produce the goods. Ronny Deila's not the man who's kicking the ball, it's the players."

He makes a valid point. As much as Deila's management has not been inspiring at times this season the Celtic players have not been performing to the best of their own abilities either.

Perhaps it is complacency considering the ease in which Celtic usually tidy up the Scottish Premiership title, but for whatever reason Deila and Celtic are struggling to find real consistency this season.

Celtic are currently four points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the table but have dropped points in their last two Premiership fixtures.
