Norwegian boss Deila humbled by Celtic links

Ronny Deila admits he is humbled by suggestions that Celtic are targeting him to fill their managerial vacancy.

The 38-year old Norwegian is currently in charge of Stromsgodset but is now the number one target for the Hoops according to Press Association Sport.

Scottish champions Celtic and Neil Lennon parted ways last month which has prompted a fresh search for a new boss to take the reins at Parkhead.

Deila told reporters on Thursday that he was thrilled to be linked with the Glasgow giants but opted to remain calm about the situation.

"It's flattering as Celtic are a big club," said Deila.

"I have always said I dream about working abroad one day.

"It's great to be linked to a club like Celtic but I've been in football a long time and nothing is secure in it and I can only talk about things that are concrete."
