ANDY WALKER reckons there is growing resentment among Celtic fans over the “dull and uninspiring” football under Ronny Deila.
The Hoops failed to win for the second successive home game after losing 2-1 to Motherwell at the weekend.

That defeat followed a drab goalless draw against Kilmarnock last month and ex-Parkhead striker Walker believes the followers are now questioning whether the Norwegian can deliver.

He said: “It’s their style of play at the moment. It is dull and uninspiring.TEHSwLsH5ykLlqNf3eyWNGJN-3KQAkqRj9dVWzh1qm0

“Celtic, at home, are normally very good. They had a difficult away game last week against St Johnstone and scored three goals, but in front of your own supporters I think you really need to send a message that you know what you are doing.

“And I think there is a growing feeling of resentment among the Celtic supporters that Ronny Deila might not be up to it.

“European results have been embarrassing and there is no evidence he is learning from these European defeats.

“I have to say I still think Celtic will go on and win the title, they might secure another cup or two, but there is no evidence that Ronny Deila has the knowledge to get through the Champions League qualifiers next year.

“And for Celtic to lose out on that again would be a real hammer blow for the fans.”

The SPFL champions travel to Edinburgh to play Hearts on Sunday and Walker says they will have to be wary of Robbie Neilson’s side.

He added: “Sunday will be a tough one for Celtic. It always is at Tynecastle and you have to be aware of what your nearest challengers are doing.
“Aberdeen have recovered well from that awful period in October where they had a five-point lead at the top and, all of a sudden within five weeks, it was a seven-point deficit.

“They have managed to get that back. They still have great attacking players from middle to front. Jonny Hayes, Niall McGinn and Adam Rooney are all in fine form with Kenny McLean just behind them.

“So, if they can put a run together like they did at the start of the season then they could push Celtic all the way.

“However, I think Celtic’s strength, resources and ability to do business in the January transfer window will see them come good in the end.”
