Ronny Deila: I want to win everything at Celtic

We bring you the headlines from Celtic manager Ronny Deila's press conference earlier today.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila says the club's proud history is making him want to deliver every trophy available to him in his first season in charge of the Bhoys. 

Deila's men take on Hearts in the Scottish Cup this weekend but there is no way the Norwegian will allow his players to take their foot off the gas.

On the contrary, he insists the cup competition remains a very important tournament to his side this term and will demand that they play to their maximum capabilities. 

"Every time I wake up in the morning I see it in front of me and that’s the goal - to win everything and I think the players are doing that too," Deila said in his press conference

“We have to think about what we’re going to do and how we’re going to achieve it. We can talk about results but we have to do the job, and that starts every day in training and how we prepare for every game and training.”

Hearts are currently top of the Scottish Championship by a considerable distance and are still unbeaten thhe league this campaign. And Deila knows of the threat they pose, even if they aren't currently playing at the top level of Scottish football. 

"They are the best team in the Championship right now and have a lot of confidence and they had a good game here," he said. 

"Hearts are a playing team and they like to pass the ball. I like the way they play and the way they have had developed the team."

Celtic go into the game having seen their unbeaten streak broken by defeat to Red Bull Salzburg last night. 

The Bhoys lost 3-1 to the Austrian outfit but they still managed to qualify from their Europa League group because results elsewhere went their way.

"There are positive things to take from it and I'm delighted we’re through," Deila added.
