Deila suggests that Guidetti has finally taken on board his important message

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has been trying to get John Guidetti to be more of a team player all season.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila appears to have suggested in the Glasgow Evening Times that John Guidetti has finally lost his selfish streak.

The Swedish front man has frustrated Bhoys supporters this season with his seemingly individualistic attitude, but Deila appears to have finally got across his message that football is a team game.

The Norwegian manager says that Guidetti is starting to value assists just as much as goals and he is pleased to see this change of approach.

"I think he understands that it is not just about him scoring, but about what he does for the team," he said. "He is talking a lot about assists as well, which is good."

Guidetti's attitude has come into question this campaign, with some of his actions appearing not to fit in with the collective spirit created at Celtic.

However, if the 22-year-old does start showing more team spirit there can be no questioning his value to the Bhoys.

His goalscoring form may have slowed down after his blistering start at Parkhead, but he is a raw talent and with the right guidance he could go on to be a star.

It seems that Guidetti is starting to progress under Deila's stewardship too, and Celtic fans will be hoping to see more of his changed attitude between now and the end of the season.
