Almost all Players are backing Ronny Deila

The players remain fully behind manager Ronny Deila according to winger Gary Mackay-Steven.

The manager has come under fire in recent months due to poor and inconsistent results in the league and cup competitions. Failure to do well in Europe has been a consistent theme under the Norwegian manager. This was not the case under former boss Neil Lennon, who chose to try his luck in English football by joining Championship outfit Bolton. In a surprising turn around, Lennon recently parted company with Bolton and has been linked with a return to Parkhead.

As the speculation mounts on Deila’s future at the club,Mackay-Steven has backed the young Norwegian to deliver the league title once again. Celtic are also in the Scottish cup semi-final going head-to-head against their old rivals Rangers. If Lennon does come to Celtic in the summer, it would see him taking on Rangers once again as they are strong favourites to get promoted from the Championship. Others candidates likely to show interest in the job include former Everton boss David Moyes, who is out of work after having left Real Sociedad months ago. Moyes recently revealed that taking over at Celtic would be a dream come true.

“We’re still in two competitions. Everything is in our hands. We’re all behind the manager here, and he’s certainly behind the players. I think you can take that with a pinch of salt. We certainly do as players. We just go about our business and play for the manager. I am enjoying playing under the manager that is here now and that’s what I’ll continue to do. It’s in our hands.If we just concentrate on ourselves and good performances on Saturdays then maybe that talk will go down a little bit,” said the winger, who has three goals in 23 league appearances this campaign.
