Ronny Deila: Will leave Celtic at end of the season

Former Celtic striker Andy Walker says it’s time for Celtic to axe boss Ronny Deila following their 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen on Wednesday night.

The Hoops were beaten by Ross County in the Scottish League Cup semi-final at the weekend and last night goals from Jonny Hayes and Simon Church earned Aberdeen a 2-1 victory as Celtic’s  lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership was cut to three points.

Walker told Sky Sports: “I didn’t see any reaction from the Celtic players today after the weekend’s defeat to Ross County.

“I didn’t see any reaction during the game against Ross County and I didn’t see any reaction when they went 2-0 down tonight and I think you can ignore what the Celtic board are saying.

“This is now a call for Dermot Desmond. If he has got his finger on the pulse of the Celtic support, who continually booed the players at the end of the game, then he will realise he’s got a big decision to make.

“Do you trust Ronny Deila to come up with the type of results that will not only get Celtic the title but a bit of success in Europe?

“If it was up to me I would change the manager tomorrow.

“Celtic have a huge advantage in terms of resources and everything you want.

“How did they defend tonight? The amount of long balls that were played when Celtic were 2-0 down and they didn’t go and compete for them.

“I know that’s not down to the manager but the manager has to make the kind of changes and type of signings that can get Celtic success on the park and all of that is up for serious debate.”
