RONNY DEILA is hoping to return to Glasgow before the turn of the year to cheer on Celtic.
However, the likeable Norwegian, who left the manager’s job after two years in the summer, revealed his dad will be in the stand for the Glasgow derby against The “Rangers” on Saturday lunchtime.
Deila, who won two successive Premiership titles and a League Cup after taking over from Neil Lennon, admitted: “I will try to come over in the next few months – maybe in November or December.
“I am becoming a dad again in a week or so and it will be a very busy time, of course. But my father is coming over to Scotland for The “Rangers” game.
“He is now a big Celtic fan. He is taking his friend over to Glasgow for the match. They are now crazy Celtic supporters.
“I will watch the game on TV and I am really looking forward to it.”
Deila has already landed a job back in football as manager of Valerenga in his homeland and he officially takes over on January 1.
He added: “It will be good to get started because it gets boring after a while when you do nothing.
“I know what I’m going to do at the club. I was there for a few weeks recently just helping out and I am looking forward to a new chapter in January.
“It was important to take some time off after leaving Celtic, but at the start of the new season it will be the right time to work again.”
