RONNY DEILA, who will leave Celtic following the last league game of the season against Motherwell a week tomorrow, has admitted he is “hungry” to make a quickfire return to management.
The Norwegian has already been linked with Borndby, but insisted he is unaware of any interest in him from the Danish club.
Deila said: “I want to stay abroad. I have done everything I can in Norway. I’ve been abroad now and want to stay abroad. Could I manage another club in Scotland? That’s hard to say, you never know in football.
Yesterday CQN reported that Ronny Deila is being serious considered by Dundee United to begin a complete rebuilding job at Tannadice following the club’s relegation on Monday evening after losing 2-1 to city rivals Dundee.
“I don’t know anything about Brondby. Again, it is rumours and there will be a lot of rumours now. But Denmark is definitely abroad for Norwegians, just like England is for Scots!
“What I know now is that I have three games left at Celtic, then I’m going to have a vacation. But I am hungry to keep working as a coach. I have learned a lot at Celtic and I have gained a lot of experience.
“When I work again will depend on what kind of job is available. If the job is right for me, I can start at once. If it isn’t right, then I will just have a good time in Marbella and wait and see.
“The most important thing for me is that I suit the style of the organisation and how they run things at their club.
“I will take with me the wisdom that I have gained here. But it is going to be difficult to get as high pressure a job as I had here. It would have to be a very, very good football team.
“I don’t think there are a lot of clubs even in the English Premier League which have that pressure. I think you have to go to the top six or seven teams down there to get that.”
Meanwhile, Deila has praised former Liverpool and Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers following a shift in the betting which saw his odds slashed to become the next Hoops gaffer.
The departing boss said: “He’s a modern manager. He works a lot with processes and talks a lot with his players. He’s very good on the training pitch and he’s very determined and very clear in what he wants.
“He is a very nice human being. He did a good job at Liverpool and a fantastic job at Swansea. I have only positive things to say about him.”
