Ronny Deila not worried about Celtic future after semi-final loss
Manager says team need to be stronger when faced with adversity.
Ronny Deila says he isn't worried about his job as Celtic manager despite the 3-1 League Cup semi-final defeat to Ross County.
Goals from Michael Woods, Paul Quinn and Alex Shalk ended the Norwegian's hopes of claiming a domestic treble in a match that saw Leigh Griffiths miss a penalty while Efe Ambrose was sent off.
Asked if he feared for his future, Deila said: "I'm not worried about anything. I've got big ambitions and I'm as disappointed as everyone else.
"Cups are tough things as you saw last year and you see this year as well.
"Things can happen in one game and it happened again. We went out and we are very disappointed.
"But there is still a lot to play for. I see a team that can be really good here and I'm going to work really hard to get us where we want."
Gary Mackay-Steven gave the Scottish champions an early lead, tapping in after being set up by Grifftihs.
But Ambrose's red card changed the match with County drawing level before Quinn's header put the Highland men ahead.
Alex Shalk extended County's advantage before Griffiths saw his spot kick saved by Scott Fox.
Deila says his side must be stronger when dealing with adversity after being reduced to ten men for a second successive last four match.
He added: "It is tough to play 80 minutes with ten men and of course we could have done that better.
"I think we have to show more character when something goes against us. We are a little bit too weak and give away things too easily."
Deila clarified that he wasn't suggesting his players were mentally weak but said they had to work on their reaction when at a disadvantage.
He added: "We can be stronger in situations when things go against us and that's something we're working on and we have to get better at."
