Ronny Deila lifted the lid on some of his time at Celtic in a podcast interview this week in Norway. During that interview the former Celtic boss spoke about the players fitness when he got to the club and how he strived to make them better, leaner and fitter.

The biggest shift he seen was in Virgil van Dijk who took to the fitness regime and helped him improve as a footballer. The former Celtic boss gets a lot of bad press but in this instance he should be given credit for helping Virgil get to that next level.

Speaking about the Celtic team’s fitness levels Ronny said –

Virgil moved on to Southampton for a record breaking fee and hasn’t really looked back with a big money move to a top side imminent.
