Ronny Deila on the Brink of Being Named Manager of New York City FC

Former Celtic manager Ronny Deila is on the brink of being named the new manager of New York City FC, according to reliable reports this evening.

The Norwegian coach is still in charge of Vålerenga in his homeland, where he’s been working ever since leaving the Hoops back in the spring of 2016, before being replaced by Brendan Rodgers.

Deila managed to guide Celtic to back-to-back Premiership titles during his spell in Scotland, as well as one League Cup, but was ushered out following the disappointing defeat to Rangers in the 2016 Scottish Cup semi-final.

However, according to MLS writer for The Athletic Pablo Maurer, the deal to bring Deila to American soccer is essentially done, and he’ll be reunited in the Big Apple with one of his former players Gary Mackay-Steven:

What do you think of Deila’s decision to move to the States and do you think Deila will prosper in MLS?
