Ronny Deila has spoke about the young age of his squad and how he is now looking for some wise older heads to balance out his team as they head into the Europa League.

While discussing potential players Ronny admitted it’s difficult to get players with real experience on Celtic’s wage structure even if they do come on a free.

Darren Fletcher

Admitting that before Darren Fletcher signed for West Brom last season the club got in touch with him about a potential move to Celtic.

Deila said: “It’s a very big challenge. Darren Fletcher went to West Brom on three times the salary he could get 
at Celtic.

“Did we ask him? We were talking to every player who has a connection to Celtic with that type of experience.”

With the transfer window closing early next week it’s now a race against time to bring in some experience.

Celtic completed the signing of Tyler Blackett yesterday on a season long loan but he is another young signing.
