Ronny Deila is set to leave Celtic Park at the end of the season.

Deila’s exit comes three days after a Scottish Cup semi-final defeat by fierce rivals Rangers at Hampden Park.

The Norwegian manager arrived from Stromsgodset in 2014, replacing former Celtic captain, Neil Lennon.

Deila led The Bhoys to the Scottish Premiership title last term as well as the League Cup but the Scottish side didn’t perform well in Europe, failing to reach the Champions League group stage in consecutive seasons, whilst also finishing bottom of their Europa League pool this season.

However, the former Norwegian U21 has guided Celtic to the top of the Scottish Premiership this term with Aberdeen following by eight points. Celtic have five games remaining to claim the title.

Celtic fan, Rob Smith commented on the situation saying, “It’s a shame that it has not worked out for Deila at Celtic, he’s a good manager but wasn’t helped by the board.

“He wasn’t allowed to choose his backroom staff and was given little resources to build a squad of his own.”

Smith continued to say, “It’s been a long time coming to be honest. More often than not, he’s looked far out of his depth.

“Poor tactical decisions such as never switching from his ‘one man up front’ philosophy and a string of poor signings at the same time that the spine of our team was sold to Southampton, have meant that over the last four years, we’ve gone backwards and Rangers have caught up.

“Sunday’s terrible display at Hampden was the final straw.”

A number of managers have already been linked to the job including former player, Lennon.

The former Celtic midfielder commented on his name being linked with the job saying, “If I get the chance to speak to the Celtic board then I will.”

Other managers who have had their names thrown at the Celtic job include Roy Keane and David Moyes.
