Celtic drew 1-1 with Ross County.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila says there was nothing controversial about chief executive Peter Lawwell visiting the dressing room following their 1-1 draw with Ross County, Sky Sports report.

After Deila told the players last week of his intentions to leave the club, further pressure has been placed on both the players and the club’s board to improve their current situation.

While the Glasgow club look nailed on to win the fifth successive Scottish Premiership title, all is not well at Celtic Park as the supporters feel the club on the whole has vastly under-performed this season.

Following the disappointing 1-1 draw with County, reports emerged of Peter Lawwell visiting the dressing room after the match with speculation suggesting the players could have received stern words.

However, Deila has played down the situation, citing the ordeal as ordinary, telling Sky Sports: "He spoke to me, not the players. We speak together all the time so it is nothing new.”

"It is not like I am going to quit tomorrow. I am going to stay here for the rest of the season and do everything to get over the line and perform better than we did today.”

Leigh Griffiths managed to notch his 38th goal of the campaign, yet it wasn’t enough as the Highlands club responded well in the second-half and found an equaliser through Stewart Murdoch.

The Hoops remain nine points clear of Aberdeen in the race for the title, with four games remaining.
