Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told The Daily Record that he will remain a supporter of the club for life.
Deila was appointed the Celtic manager in the summer of 2014, and he will leave the Glasgow giants at the end of the season.
The Norwegian guided the Bhoys to Scottish Premiership and the Scottish League Cup success last season.
Celtic are on the verge of winning the Scottish Premiership title campaign this campaign.
Deila has been criticised by fans for the Hoops’ disappointing results and performances this season, but the 40-year-old has suggested that he will always have a soft spot in his heart for the Scottish club.
“I’ve been at a few clubs in my life and at some of them have stayed for a while,” the Norwegian told The Daily Record. “That’s a positive because, if you have the right values and treat people the right way, then you can stay at a club for a good period.
“That’s what I wanted here but the circumstances were not right in the end. I will always be a supporter. That’s because of the way they are treating me.
“This was my decision, it was too much pressure on me and it affected the club and the players. I saw it.”
Deila’s comments suggests that he genuinely cares for Celtic, and fans should respect him for that.
While it can be argued that the Norwegian is not the right manager to take the Hoops forward, it is clear that he is hurting and is disappointed that he could not achieve the kind of success with the Hoops that he wanted to.
