RONNY DEILA hailed Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell as “amazing” for his backing in the transfer window.

The Hoops splashed a reported £2million to bring in midfielder Stuart Armstrong and winger Gary Mackay-Steven from Dundee United on deadline day.
Midfielder Kris Commons then handed the Hoops a further boost on Thursday by signing a new two-year deal, at the behest of Deila, who was also delighted that none of his top players such as defender Virgil van Dijk had left the champions.

The Norwegian said: “Peter Lawwell has been amazing in this transfer window.

“Peter and me co-operate in a good way. We have the same goals.

“We got what we wanted. We wanted the two players from Dundee United; we got them.

“Kris Commons; I took the decision that he gets this contract and we went through with it.

“There is no problem to me giving him two years.

“Now this is done, I am happy, Kris is happy and now we have to concentrate on what happens on the pitch.”
