Ronny Delia’s post-match press conferences are very similar, but after the shocking 2-1 defeat to Motherwell he was clearly not happy with the performance.
Deila was visibly angry after his team failed to win for the fourth consecutive game at the once so-called fortress of Celtic Park.
Nir Bitton’s goal just after half-time looked to have settled Celtic down but a quick brace from Louis Moult handed Celtic their second defeat of the domestic season.
It means that Aberdeen are breathing down his sides neck again after it looked all but over when they defeated their closest rivals 3-0 earlier in the season.
Ronny is now under pressure according to Andy Walker who claims Celtic Fans are questioning if Delia is “up to it.”
After the game the Norwegian said, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times:
It was very, very disappointing that we lost this game. We were 1-0 up and should have been able to keep our lead and then we went far too open, lost out discipline and focus.
When that happens you get punished and this has to be something we learn from because it was not good enough. We need to get back on track at Tynecastle next Sunday.
The performance really surprised me. We are a lot better than that. It always surprised me when things like that happen. We as a group are not satisfied at all. We need to improve for our next match.
Many phoned in Radio Clyde’s Superscoreboard to vent their frustration, but many also backed the Norwegian claiming if he was sacked it would take us even further backwards.
However, Delia seems to be staying calm under the pressure and added:
First of all, we have to be more compact and much better defensively against Hearts compared to the Motherwell game.
We need to win more challenges as well – that is important – and from then show more tempo in our play.
We have skills. We can create chances. But that starts with good defence.
