Celtic player Erik Sviatchenko opened up about their loss to Lincoln Red imps in their Champions League game.

Scott Brown is certain that Brendan Rodgers was the right choice

After sealing the 5th successive Scottish Championship League for Celtic FC, Ronny Deila decided to step down from coaching the club and he was recently replaced by Brendan Rodgers.

The Northern Irish manager spent 3 years and 3 months in charge of the Premier League and he failed to win any piece of silverware during this period of time.

Ronny Deila to leave Celtic at the end of the season

With the current Celtic manager announcing that he will leave Celtic at the end of the season, the club is left with the task of finding a suitable replacement.

There have been some media reports that Ryan Giggs might be a potential replacement for Deila, but so far there has been no confirmation from the former Manchester United player. However, it is believed that Giggs would want to wait for a decision from the Manchester United board about his future role at the club.

Ronny Deila confident on Team Backing

Ronny Deila is quite certain that he would keep having the backing of the Celtic faithful till the time he is the team chief.

This is the second Celtic campaign to be overseen by Deila and this one is proving to be a bit more difficult than the first one.

Back to back wins the previous week gave him a bit of a breathing ground though as his team is now 4 points clear at the top, but, Deila is not ignorant to the fact that his job is on the edge.

And, it’s some of the fans too who are amongst the discontent voices.

Celtic’s disappointing run of form has seen manager Ronny Deila’s

Celtic’s disappointing run of form has seen manager Ronny Deila’s job come under pressure of late.

There have been intense calls for the Scottish club to dismiss the manager in the hope of improved results. Deila has done a decent job after coming as the replacement for Neil Lennon in July 2014. However, his record looks good only when domestic titles are concerned. Celtic have been majorly disappointing in European competitions and this has often been the yardstick on which they have been measured as a club in recent times. This is due to the decline of Scottish football in general.

Ronny Deila has come down hard on people

Ronny Deila has come down hard on people who have been criticizing his team for a couple of below average performances in Europe of late.

According to Deila, people are looking to hurt the Celts somehow and that’s why, they have been so adamant on saying negative things.

Deila reckons when a club happens to be consistent and enjoys a high rate of success, it has to face negativity as well at some point of time, but, in those periods, it’s important to ensure unity within the group.

Celtic are still in contention to qualify for the group stages

Celtic are still in contention to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League and manager Ronny Deila says that they will complete the task when they take on Stjarnan.

The Icelandic club are one of the opponents standing in front of Celtic. The Scottish club managed a 2-0 victory in the first leg. As a result, even a draw will see them into the next round. However, there are concerns that the opposition will gain an advantage on home turf since they are used to playing on the plastic pitch used here. Deila, though, is unconcerned about the artificial pitch.
