Celtic look forward to a new era as the appointment of Ronny Deila heralds a changing of the guard

Celtic will be looking to continue their recent dominance in Scottish football, a dominance that has gone unchallenged since the demise of their Old Firm rivals, Rangers. 2014/16 is the second full season in charge for Ronny Deila, who succeeded the managerial role from Neil Lennon.

Celtic enter the new season off the back of a dominant campaign where they lost only 4 games and won 29 of their 38 League matches. Celtic clinched their fourth title in a row on the first weekend in May, finishing 11 points clear of Aberdeen with three games to play.
