Ronny Deila insisted there is clear air around Celtic as he prepared for the Europa League opener against Ajax in Amsterdam tonight.

The Hoops were criticised after losing their place at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat by Aberdeen.

And after being knocked out of the Champions League at the play-off stage, there is pressure on the Norwegian to keep their domestic and European campaign on track.

Deila put the suggestion of a crisis at the club down to a "media circus" as he claimed the team were in a "good place."

He said: "I know there is responsibility at Celtic. I know it's about winning.

"We can win every tournament in Scotland and can be better in Europe than we were last year. So I see a lot of possibilities here.

"We are determined to reach our goals, to win trophies and progress in Europe.

"Football is up and down. It is never in a straight line up to heaven. Sometimes there are setbacks."

Celtic will be without Charlie Mulgrew tonight due to a thigh injury picked up on Saturday.
