Just winning the Scottish Championship alone will not be enough for Deila and he has been the first to recognise that. In his first press conference as the new Celtic manager, Deila stated that he plans to make Celtic’s achievements bigger in the next few years, but not by spending money on new players. Instead, he wants to exploit the existing facilities at the club and turn them into a club that develops young talent.

LENNON UNSURE ON PREM

Neil Lennon has once again talk about the possibility of managing in the Premier league, which is unlikely to reduce any rumours linking him with Norwich City. The Premier league outfit are heavily linked with a managerial change in the coming weeks, as they are thought to be unhappy with the performances of Chris Hughton.

The team has found it difficult to get results under the former Newcastle United assistant manager. Lennon has had a fantastic record of managing teams at the top end of the table.

CELTIC SEW IT UP

After the relegation of Rangers to the third division of Scottish football recently, Celtic have been the overwhelming favourites to win the league title. They currently lead the table by a massive 19 points that only appears to confirm this notion.

As a result, the club’s main challenge has been to do well in the Champions League and also the Scottish cup. However, this campaign Celtic appear to have failed in both aspects. They have been knocked out of the Champions League at the group stages itself, while they suffered an early exit in the Scottish cup.

CELTIC COME CLOSE

Celtic came extremely close to getting a famous win at the San Siro in the Champions league when they took on a similar in the group stages. The Scottish club had several opportunities to win the match, but they failed to take be opportunities.

In the end, they were punished by two goals from Milan in the last 10 minutes. There is a feeling that Celtic would have taken a victory from the match had they possessed a striker of Champions league quality. Instead, Celtic only had Anthony Stokes up front who was making his first appearance in this competition.
