Ronny Deila: Some Celtic players "happy" to see me leave

Ronny Deila

"I would think he will receive a job offer tomorrow".

He continued: "It was an absolute privilege to be named manager of Celtic, such a wonderful football club and I have enjoyed my time here immensely".

There have been some great times and I am delighted that we have brought some trophies to the Club.

Deila is on his way to winning his second successive Premiership title this season, and also has a Scottish League Cup under his belt.

"When I came in to the job I talked about improving the team and playing attractive football and I think the last six months we haven't had the improvement that we need".

"I haven't spoken to the gaffer here yet about it but I'm sure that conversation will come up". The fans have been magnificent during the past two years. If the club wanted to do that, they would have looked at it. Some of them have been very good but overall it hasn't been what we need at Celtic.

When quizzed about the post, he said: "I've two jobs, ITV and Ireland!" "I read reports about them getting battered by Celtic today".

"It is going to be a huge thing for me, the players and the whole club".

Roy Keane and David Moyes top Celtic's wish-list to replace manager Ronny Deila.

Celtic chairman Ian Bankier said Deila was "a fine man with strong values of honesty and integrity".

When asked specifically about the Celtic job, he added: "Celtic are a great club".

Ronny Deila will step down as Celtic manager at the end of the season.

"But Celtic are going to need a little bit of surgery to that team and a manager that is going to go in and say, 'This is what I need, can we get this player, make sure we get him, I like him'".

"That is why I am not a bitter man".

"In the immediate future, that means the Scottish Premiership title". " However, he told the Daily Record before the game that "The door is always open to doing it from the dugout again - I made that clear when I left". It has been like that all the time", Deila said. I don't think I will ever have that at another club in my life - unless I take over at Barcelona and do fantastic!

Striker Martyn Waghorn, the 26-year-old who has been nominated for the PFA Scotland Championship player of the year award, admits that his career was stalling at Wigan Athletic before his transfer to Ibrox but is now hoping to play for the promoted club in European competition.
