Celtic Confirm Ronny Deila Is Leaving The Club
By PJ Browne Updated

After the disappointment of the weekend's Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers, Celtic have confirmed that Ronny Deila will depart the club at the end of the season.

According to the club's website, the decision is Deila's, not Celtic's - believe that if you want.

The Norwegian said:

It is vital that the Club comes first and instead of me being the focus, hopefully now the team and the Club can be the focus as we enter this final important period of the season.

It was an absolute privilege to be named manager of Celtic, such a wonderful football club, and I have enjoyed my time here immensely. I will never forget the welcome I received almost two years ago at Celtic Park from so many fans. When I joined Celtic I knew I was coming to one of the world's great football clubs.

There have been some great times and I am delighted that we have brought some trophies to the Club.

The 40-year-old joined Celtic in June of 2014 from Stromsgodset.

In his first season, he won a league and cup double.

However, it has been the performances in Europe under Deila which have disappointed. In both his seasons in charge, Celtic have failed to make the group stages of the Champions League. In previous years, progression to this stage of Europe's premier club tournament has been a major source of income for the club.
