Deila: Celtic good enough for CL
25 May 2015 17:05
Celtic have improved enough to make it into the Champions League next season without any additions, according to Ronny Deila.
-
The Hoops boss got his hands on the Scottish Premiership trophy after a 5-0 win over a weakened Inverness side at Parkhead.
-
His twin teenage daughters Thale and Live carried the silverware out to the podium for former Hoops striker and fellow Norwegian Harald Brattbakk to make the presentation to skipper Scott Brown, to go with the Scottish League Cup won earlier in Deila's first season as boss.
-
Deila passed up on two chances to qualify for the Champions League earlier in the season as he came to grips with taking over from Neil Lennon.

But he insists that even if they do not add to the squad, they will be a much better place for a tilt at Europe next season.
-
He said: "I think we are still in a good position, even if we don't add anyone else before the qualifiers. I'm not worried.
-
"I know that the players who are here already are the ones who are going to do the main job.
-
"We were in a totally different place last year with a lot of uncertainties.
-
"They felt unsafe with what I wanted to put into the team. The transition was so hard.
-
"We struggled with that. A lot of managers have come into Celtic and other places before me and also struggled with that.
-
"Now we have a foundation to work on. You can see that everyone on the pitch knows their tasks and have a good togetherness.
-
"We know what is ahead of us and it motivates us."
