Celtic boss Ronny Deila linked with Brondby job, along with Morten Wieghorst

Ronny Deila

The Norwegian is leaving Celtic at the end of the season.

Celtic are currently on the hunt for a new manager. The Bhoys current boss Ronny Deila will be stepping down from his role at the club come the end of the season and plenty of names have been linked with the Celtic vacancy.

But what next for Deila?

Reports this week are suggesting that Deila could be a potential target for Danish side Brondby in the summer.

TV3 Sport reported last week that Celtic boss Deila was a potential candidate for Brondby.

Now Ekstra Bladet has reported that whilst no discussion between the two parties has yet to begin, Deila is an option for the Danish giants.

Brondby are after a new coach as Thomas Frank stepped down in March. Aurelijus Skarbalius is currently in temporary charge but Brondby are still fighting to finish in the top three in Denmark in order to qualify for European football for next term.

Deila would certainly be an option, considering the Norwegian’s knowledge of Scandinavian football.

However, he would be doing battle with a former Celtic player for the job. Ekstra Bladet is reporting that Morten Wieghorst, who played for Celtic for seven years and spent three years at Brondby, is also on the shortlist – although his playing style is apparently not to Brodnby’s taste.

He has previously worked as manager of FC Nordsjaelland, the Danish under-21s and AGF as well as being assistant to Michael Laudrup at Swansea.

So it will be interesting to see whether either of these two with Celtic connections end up at Brondby.
