Lennon backed up Deila

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon has backed his successor Ronny Deila by saying that success will eventually come to the Norwegian. Many questioned the appointment of Deila given that he did not have much top-flight experience. He has been the manager of a few clubs in Scandinavia before being given the Celtic managerial job. It has proven to be a tough few months for the new manager, as he has not only had to live up to the expectations created by Neil Lennon’s four years in charge of the club but also the fans expectations as well.

Fans turn back on Brown

Celtic have endured a tough start to the season under the management of Ronny Deila, who was appointed as the replacement for Neil Lennon. The manager has overseen Celtic dropping out of the Champions League without qualifying for the group stages. After having been in the group stages for the last two seasons, the club will now have to accept Europa league football for the coming campaign. To add to the misery, Deila suggested that Celtic should no longer look forward to playing in the Champions League since they have fallen well off the pace.

Deila Believes Team Is Weary

Ronny Deila, the Celtic boss, has said that weariness was one of the reasons of his team’s heavy defeat in the European Cup qualifying match against Legia Warsaw the other day.

Celtic was beaten by a big margin of 1-4 in the first leg of that qualifier against Warsaw.

The Celts can come back and still win the tie on aggregate if they do something magical in the return leg on their home ground, but, that doesn’t seem to be likely.
