Celtic name Deila as new boss

Norwegian Ronny Deila has been named as the new manager of Celtic on a 12-month rolling contract. Deila guided Stromsgodset to the Tippeligaen title last season and won the Norwegian Cup in 2010.

"I will treasure this opportunity and will give everything I have to achieve success for Celtic," said Deila.

"It is a magnificent honour to be named the new manager of Celtic, one of the world's great football clubs and a club I have such enormous respect for.

"I know what I want for Celtic and our supporters and that is the best of everything, it is what our fans deserve.

"I want to deliver the best attacking, exciting and entertaining football we can play, for the players to give their best every time they take to the field of and, of course, I want my players to work with me to achieve the best results possible and bring trophies to Celtic.

"Celtic is in great shape and the club has enjoyed real success in recent years due to the hard work of Neil and his team.

"I want to carry on this work and continue to bring happy times to Celtic. I can't wait to get started on this journey."
