Ronny Deila says that the “Ronny Roar” will continue at Celtic until the end of the season under one condition.
If Celtic can continue winning from their next game against Hearts until the end of the season, the Norwegian has vowed to continue his trademark “Ronny Roar” post-game celebration.
As quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times, he said:
For me, I wanted to give [the fans] some thanks and show them that it meant a lot to me. Is it back for good now? We will see. Hopefully there will be a lot to do it for.

There was a lot of emotion coming out when we had that beautiful strike by Tom Rogic. You can’t hold it inside, you have to let it out. It was a fantastic feeling.
The fans were fantastic. There could have been a lot of disappointment in the way we played, but they stood behind their team. It was fantastic to give them that win in the end. It’s important that the fans support Celtic. It’s not just me, but I am part of Celtic, and that’s why they support me.
We took a big chance in the end. We played a diamond in midfield with Patrick (Roberts) on one side and we were very open with two strikers. But one point is nothing. We went for three and we got them.
Of course there are going to be questions. Of course there are going to be people who are not happy. But that’s because they care about the product. But as long as I am here people will support me because I am part of Celtic.
Before Saturday’s win, the last time Deila went to the fans and performed his trademark celebration was after a 1-0 win over Motherwell at Fir Park, in October.
Since then Celtic have fallen short in Europe and bowed out of the Scottish League Cup preventing a treble.
Although fans have grown frustrated with him this season at times for tactical and personnel decisions, there’s no doubting he cares and wants to bring another double to Paradise.
Celtic now have a chance to dust themselves down and prepare for the season run in, which starts against the Jambos on April 2nd at Paradise.
