Ronny Deila has come under increasing pressure since Wednesday’s defeat which was the first time his team have ever suffered back-to-back defeats.
Celtic currently sit three points clear at the top of the table and are in a very similar scenario to last season in the title race.
The Norwegian’s side went on to win the league title by 17 points from their closest rivals Aberdeen but some have even pondered the thought of not winning the title this year.
In Celtic’s third loss in the league and second at the hands of Aberdeen at Pittodrie this season many players didn’t put up the fight fans want to see.
Both fixtures have finished 2-1, however Wednesday’s, and even Sunday’s performance had alarm bells ringing in fans heads, as some players looked completely uninterested.
However if the unthinkable happens in the league this season and the Dons win their first league title since 1985, Deila knows he has no chance of managing Celtic next season.
As quoted by the Daily Mail , when asked about that possibility, he said:
I wouldn’t see any reason to continue then, you know. Then I haven’t done my job, of course.
That speaks for itself. Then my future is over here.
We have to win the league. That’s how it is and it’s just something you should expect from this team.
I really believe I’m the right man for this club. Everything is in our hands, we can win the league and that’s what we’re going to do.
If we don’t then, of course, that’s a failure – that’s how it is. We’re going to work really hard to get into the Champions League next year.
Leadership is about being calm, especially in this type of situation. I don’t want to lose my head and be angry, it doesn’t solve anything.
Deila’s Bhoys will be expected to get back on track this Sunday and put on a professional performance against East Kilbride in the Scottish Cup fifth round.
