Deila: Everyone wants Old Firm tie
22 Sep 2014 17:05
Ronny Deila would love nothing more than experiencing his first Old Firm derby on the way to cup glory with Celtic this season.
-
The Norwegian has had a troubled start to his tenure as Hoops manager since taking over from Neil Lennon in the summer, but is determined to capture the first trophy available - the League Cup, where his side face Hearts in the third round at Parkhead on Wednesday night.
-
With traditional rivals Rangers in the Championship and making their way back through the leagues following their descent into liquidation, Deila's only hope of facing Gers boss Ally McCoist this season comes in the cup competitions, the possibility of which will increase if his team get past the Tynecastle men and Rangers win at Falkirk on Tuesday night.
-
The Celtic boss said: "We would love to play Rangers. Everybody is waiting for an Old Firm game and that's what we want.
-
"It is a big game. I haven't seen so much of Rangers so we will see if the game does come.
-
"The League Cup is very important, it is the first trophy we can win and we are going to go for it.
-
"Cup finals are unbelievable and that is why I am here, to win trophies and to develop the team in the right way.
-
"That is why I am looking forward to the game on Wednesday. I will play my best team."
