Celtic manager Ronny Deila early favourite in SPL Sack Race

Ronny DeilaCeltic manager Ronny Deila has not enjoyed the best of starts to his 12-month rolling contract at Parkhead. Neil Lennon's under-fire successor has won two and lost two of his opening four competitive matches in charge of the Scottish giants, which includes devastating back-to-back defeats to Legia Warsaw.

Celtic’s hopes of a third successive Champions League campaign were abruptly ended on Wednesday after they suffered a crushing 6-1 aggregate defeat to the Polish champions, leaving Deila in a vulnerable position before he has even overseen an SPL game.

As a result Deila has been installed as the early favourite in the SPL Sack Race, which Bet Victor opened back up last weekend. The Norwegian was originally priced at 10/1 but the Hoops' early exit from European football's flagship event has seen his odds chopped down to 4/1, and they are likely to plummet further if the club endure a slow start to their domestic campaign.

Celtic's absence from the main draw of the Champions League means they will not only lose out on a lorry load of cash, but they are now in severe danger of losing their top stars. Southampton, who know all about a mass exodus of players, have been hotly linked with Celtic's England shot-stopper Fraser Forster. Meanwhile the highly-rated Hoops defender Virgil van Dijk is also on the verge of departing, with both the Saints and Newcastle targeting the Dutchman.

Celtic are once again expected to run riot in the SPL (odds-on 1/66 favourites with Bet365), although the absence of Champions League football means they head into the new season deflated. The defending champions kick-off their league campaign away to St Johnstone next Wednesday, which is followed by games against Dundee United, Inverness CT and Dundee in August.
