Stromsgodset boss Ronny Deila has emerged as a candidate to take over at Scottish champions Celtic.

Deila, who led Stromsgodset to their first Norwegian league title in 43 years in style last year, is under consideration to take over at Celtic Park, according to the BBC.

A qualified teacher, Deila's coaching philosophy is based around an attacking approach with quick transitions and aggressive pressing.

Celtic have made contact with Stromsgodset and are seeking permission to hold talks with the 38-year-old.


However, there is as yet no indication on a compensation package, which would have to be agreed for the under-contract manager to move to Scotland.

Celtic lost manager Neil Lennon recently, the Northern Irishman deciding he had taken the Bhoys as far as was possible with a strict budget.

Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane ruled himself out of contention for the Celtic post earlier this week.
