Speaking to the Daily Record, Ronny Deila has admitted that he does not fear losing his job as Celtic head coach, as he believes he can fix all the problems at Parkhead.
Deila said: “I don’t fear anything, but I’m aware of the situation and that it’s critical. No-one feels that more than me. However, I believe I can change it and make it right and that’s what I’m working towards every day.”
Many fans want to see Deila out of a job at Parkhead, despite his domestic success since taking charge of the Bhoys as a surprising appointment at the start of last season.
The 40-year-old has taken charge of 105 games in all competitions, winning 69 of them, and picking up the Scottish League Cup and Premiership double last season.
However, he has failed on the European stage, and performances are far below the level they should be for a side expected to dominate every game they play.
Deila is clearly out of his depth, and fans are turning on him, with vocal criticism aimed at him on Wednesday evening following a drab 0-0 draw with Dundee.
Still, Deila has faith that he is the man to turn things around at Celtic, and there is no sense that he is under any pressure from the Parkhead boardroom.
All things considered, this appears to be Deila’s last season at Celtic, but he will fight to the last to keep his job.
