Ronny Deila has backed his assistant manager over this mock controversy when Collins suggested European football is much more difficult than the SPFL. In other news the grass is green and the sky is blue.
The Celtic manager was straight to the point when asked about John’s comments and Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes’ reaction to them.
‘If it is hard to say that it is harder to play in the Champions League and that you get punished more there than you do in the Scottish league, then McInnes can be as angry as he wants for me. Because that is just stupid.’
The Celtic boss went on to point out similar judgements the Dons boss made about his teams European experience this term.
‘It is a truth he said himself about the team from Croatia (Rijeka).
‘He can call me if it’s a problem. It’s very nice to talk with him any time.’
There we go Derek, Ronny is waiting for your call.
