Ronny Deila’s position at Celtic went from bad to worse
Ronny Deila’s position at Celtic went from bad to worse after his team suffered a 3-1 defeat against Ross County.
This defeat in the League Cup semifinals means that the club has to forget about yet another trophy. This period is currently seen as a golden time for Celtic to add a lot of trophies to their collection since they are without the competition from Rangers. However, under the management of Deila, the club has suffered numerous setbacks against lesser opposition. The latest loss against Ross County means that they cannot compete in the final of another competition.
Deila ready to remain positive even after this result, but there have already been calls for the manager to be relieved from his position. The Norwegian was always expected to be given a tough time at Celtic Park since he was following up a fan favourite in the form of Neil Lennon. Poor form in the last few months was recently brought to an end with five consecutive victories in all competitions. This helped Celtic establish a slender six-point advantage over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League. However, winning the league is no longer the main priority for Celtic fans, who are eager to start winning more trophies and progress further in the Champions League.
"People will see that we were very good at the start of the game and we have been very good lately.It was a day when small things went against us. We need to go on and we have three days to bounce back and win against Aberdeen.I think we started very well and the first 15 minutes was fantastic football.Then the red card comes and it changes the game, but we controlled the game after that until the break," said the Celtic boss after the game.
