Deila reacts to Aberdeen win, singles Scott Brown out for praise

The Celtic manager heaped praise on his captain after beating the Dons.

Ronny Deila was full of praise for match-winner Scott Brown after the Celtic captain scored his side's only goal of the game at Aberdeen.

Brown netted a second-half winner as the Bhoys beat the Dons 1-0 to increase their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 14 points.

And Deila was understandably pleased, singling the skipper out as a 'class' player who he 'loves' to have in his team.

Indeed, the Norwegian couldn't praise the 29-year-old enough in his post-match press conference.

The Celtic boss went on to praise Brown's desire to win but also his fairness in the tackle, hailing the Bhoys' 14-point gap at the top of the table as a 'big achievement.'

Celtic's game at Aberdeen could have been a title decider but for the fact the Hoops had secured the trophy already the previous week.

Deila's men now have just two games left in the Scottish Premiership season, when they travel to St Johnstone and finish their campaign at home to Inverness Caledonian Thistle. It's certainly been a good season for the champions, then, and especially for the Celtic captain.
