RONNY DEILA isn’t quite ready to join in the 4IAR championship celebrations that got under early this afternoon as the Scottish Champions put four goals past nearest rivals Aberdeen without reply. The Celtic manager, who has insisted since taking over fron Neil Lennon in the summer that the Treble was his aim for this season, still thinks there is work to be done by his exciting young Celtic team as they chase domestic glory. Ronny said after today’s significant and comprehensive win:
‘At my former club we were three times leading in the summer by seven points and it took three years to win the league.
‘So I know how quickly it can turn around if you start to lose focus on the right things.
‘If we do everything we have done so far the rest of the season it is going to be very hard for them.
‘We have the possibility to get nine points ahead and there is goal difference as well, that is getting better.
‘So we really have a good position in the league.’
Celtic were at times second best in the early part of the game, with the manager saying that they were ”all over the place” before taking the lead just before the interval.
‘I am so happy for the performance and the result and I am proud of the boys.
‘It is so hard to play so many games like we are doing now.
‘We didn’t arrive in Glasgow until 3am on Friday morning, that is a tough one when you are going to play two days later,’ added Deila who had been critical of the early start time to suit Sky television.
