Celtic clinched their fifth Scottish Premiership in a row with a 3-2 victory over Aberdeen to end Ronny Deila’s reign on a high – but Hoops fans were more concerned with finally seeing the back of the Norwegian rather than their historic achievement.
Deila still has two more games to take charge of this season, but finally tied up the league title on Sunday in a game that almost ran away from Celtic.
The Hoops were 2-0 up at the break thanks to two wonderful efforts from Patrick Roberts, but were pegged back to 3-2 with 25 minutes left to play.
Celtic managed to come through the scare, but much of the Hoops faithful could not help but notice the poetry of the 90 minutes match and praise the football gods that Deila will soon be on the first plane out of Glasgow.
There were plenty of Celtic supporters who used the occasion to offer thanks to Deila and this tweet stood out amongst the wave of criticism.
Despite the disappointing season, Celtic fans have got to be drooling at the mouth over the talents of on-loan Manchester City winger, Roberts.
And Hoops supporters can continue to salivate at the mouth with the youngster set to return to Celtic Park next season thanks to an 18-month loan deal.
In other Celtic news, Roy Keane has been approached to take over from Deila in the summer.
