IF YESTERDAY wasn’t good enough with Celtic clinching 9IAR, Ronny Deila’s interview with Si Ferry on Open Goal was released. The Norwegian’s likeable demeanour and passion endeared him to the Celtic support and with titles No.4 and No.5 to his name, he is a vital part of Celtic’s recent history.
Speaking to Ferry on Open Goal, Deila was delighted at the news yesterday – confirming that Celtic would match the record set by Jock Stein’s side in 1974.
“It would be amazing if Celtic get ten in a row and next year is going to be important.
“Neil and his team have done fantastically well.
“I am sure he is going to drag the club to ten and hopefully I can be there to celebrate with them.”
Ronny won two titles during his time in Glasgow and left with a league cup during a time of downsizing at Celtic Park. Ronny’s interview gives a fascinating insight into the happenings of the club during that period.
Deila changed the mentality around Lennoxtown, which transitioned the young players like Callum McGregor and Tom Rogic into fully fledged first team players. Despite a loss to Rangers leading in his decision to leave, Deila arguably set the framework for Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon to build upon as the club continued to push for 10IAR.
As a vital part of Celtic’s 9IAR, Ronny Deila should always be welcome to Celtic Park and next season, if Celtic can seal the magical ten – Ronny should be one of the guests of honour.
