  • Manager: Winning title is a well-deserved reward for hard work

    Manager: Winning title is a well-deserved reward for hard work

    By: Paul Cuddihy on 02 May, 2015 17:05

  • RONNY DEILA heard the news of Celtic’s title triumph back in Norway, having headed home following Friday night’s five-star showing against Dundee.

    But even as he savoured his first championship success as Celtic manager, the Norwegian is already starting to plan for next season and the bid to reach the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

    Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Ronny Deila said: “We have achieved a big thing - winning the league for the fourth time - and hopefully there will be more and more.

    “Defensively we have been unbelievable the whole season and we have hardly conceded a goal. Offensively we have been getting better and we scored five beautiful goals against Dundee on Friday night.

    “We have worked so hard for this and finally we are there and can start thinking of next season. There is always high pressure here and I put high demands on myself as well.

    “Today we just have to enjoy it and be happy that we are champions. I’m happy with a lot of the work we have done and we are going to enjoy this night and show we are champions next Sunday.”

    Celtic travel to Pittodrie next weekend to play Aberdeen, and there’s sure to be a party atmosphere amongst the Hoops support in the stadium.

    It was at Pittodrie back in November last year that Celtic battled for a vital win, Virgil van Dijk scoring a late winner for 10-man Celtic. It sparked great celebrations between players, supporters and, of course, the manager, and also heralded the start of the now-famous ‘Ronny Roar’.

    And the manager paid tribute to the supporters who have backed the team throughout the season, home and away.

    “I want to congratulate the fans as well as they have been a big part of it,” he said. “I’m unbelievably proud to be in charge of such a fantastic club like this.”
