The Norwegian is set to leave the Scottish Premiership side at the end of the season.
The 40-year-old has already announced that he will leave Parkhead at the end of the season having spent around two years with the Hoops.
And ahead of his departure, the Norwegian has suggested that he hopes to be thought of positively by Bhoys fans in the future.
When asked about how he would like to be remembered by the supporters of the club, Deila told The Scottish Sun: "That I am passionate, honest, worked really hard, that I'm a humble guy who always took time with people and that I know what I'm talking about. That's the most important thing."
While there have been several ups and downs during his tenure, it appears that Deila is set to leave the club on a high note.
Aberdeen's emphatic defeat to St Johnstone on Friday night has left the Hoops eight points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a game in hand over the Dons.
And should they beat Ross County on Sunday, they will take themselves right onto the brink of securing the second consecutive league title, and third trophy overall, of Deila's tenure.
