Speculation increases over new boss

Stromsgodset manager Ronny Deila has moved closer to becoming the new boss of Celtic according to reports, although he was denying any direct contact with the club.

"As things stand we are awaiting an answer from them but if it's not forthcoming then we will move on" - Celtic source
But any move for his services would be
on condition the Scottish champions can agree a satisfactory compensation package with the Norwegian side.

Deila's agent Tore Pedersen was understood to be at Celtic Park yesterday and the 38-year-old is said to have already shaken hands on a deal to succeed Neil Lennon.

He would certainly arrive with a high reputation having last season taken Stromsgodset to their first domestic title in 43 years.

However, the issue of compensation still needs resolving, with Celtic's initial offer believed to be unacceptable to the Norwegians.

"We are still speaking to the club," a Celtic source told the Daily Record. "As things stand we are awaiting an answer from them but if it's not forthcoming then we will move on."

Meanwhile, a cagey Deila responded to BBC Scotland by describing latest reports as "just speculation and created by the media."

The Hoops have already missed out with earlier approaches to former players Henrik Larsson and Roy Keane.
