John Kennedy full of praise for Celtic boss Ronny Deila

John Kennedy says that he is enjoying working with Celtic manager Ronny Deila.

Celtic first-team coach John Kennedy has been singing the praises of manager Ronny Deila.

Deila was appointed the Bhoys boss in the summer, but his reign of the Scottish giants did not start well.

With Celtic failing to progress to the group stage of the Champions League and also struggling in the Scottish Premiership, questions were being asked of 39-year-old's managerial calibre.

However, Deila appears to have turned things around, with Celtic currently three points clear at the top of the Premiership table and the players buying into his philosophy.

First-team coach Kennedy is impressed with his boss and told The Daily Mail: “You obviously also have to have the character and everything else to drive the players on, which he’s got, but at the right time he’s got a calm head to make sure that he is clear in his instructions.

“From my perspective, it’s been a fantastic learning curve working under him. He is very specific in what he wants from us all and he certainly makes sure that in training every day he drums it into the players what he wants on pitch at match time.”

Celtic are not running away with the Scottish Premiership title this season as they have done in the last few years, but given their current run of form, one would expect them to pull further ahead.

Deila is very likely to win the title with Celtic, but it will matter more how he does so.
