Ronny Deila has the opportunity to leave a legacy of having won the league title twice in a row on top of his League Cup triumph last year. While his record in Europe and overall record at Hampden was poor, it is the two titles that hold all the interest now. If Ronny can keep our run going and win our 5th consecutive League title then he will leave the club with an opportunity to break its own records. If he doesn’t, he will make Tony Mowbray look like Pep Guardiola.
Ronny must win the League this year, the title is within his gasp and its addition would be a massive plus on his managerial resume. However if he loses the League title this year, he will become known as the man who lost without Rangers*. Such a tag would haunt him where ever he would ever manage. For Ronny’s sake he would want to get 3 points this weekend and put the nerves to sleep. Aberdeen do not have an easy game away to St. Johnstone on Saturday but will likely take full points.
If Celtic can bounce back from the derby pain against Ross County at Paradise on Sunday we can take a massive step towards winning the title. You would expect a response from players like Patrick Roberts for his horrendous miss and Tom Rogic for his penalty heart ache. Hopefully Kris Commons plays as well, that he didn’t play on the weekend is for me, still the most baffling decision in all of Ronny Deila’s tenure. That said, good luck Ronny, lets get these last 7 points and remember your legacy as one of titles won. Because if you don’t win the title, world football will never forget your name.
