DEPARTING Ronny Deila, with three games to go before he makes his final exit, has urged the Celtic board to resist a “quick-fix” managerial replacement.
The champions have now begun the search for a replacement and many names have emerged, including former boss Neil Lennon, ex-Manchester United, Everton and Real Sociedad gaffer Davie Moyes, Brendan Rodgers, sacked at Liverpool during the season, former skipper Paul Lambert, who is leaving Blackburn Rovers on Sunday, and Republic of Ireland No.2 Roy Keane.
“Neil Lennon developed something – and now I have. You can’t just think purely of the result, as important as that is. The manager must always also look at the performances and strive to improve them. Then the results will come.
“In this environment, it is very hard to do. However, you have to have a winning instinct, but you also always have to look for the small details to improve.
“If you think it’s all good and that you’ve learned everything? Well, for me, you’re finished.
“That is the hard thing from winning year after year after year. Complacency is the worst thing in football, you just have to do everything to avoid that.”
“England has all of the money in the world and they are not even close to being good enough.
“Some people are doing things better. The team who understands that quickest are the ones who will succeed.
“It’s not all about money. You have to spend wisely and be good at getting the right players in, but you need the right culture.”
