Celtic boss Ronny Deila admitted that his side were simply not good enough over two legs as their Champions League hopes were ended by Legia Warsaw.

After losing 4-1 in the first leg, Celtic were unable to pull the tie back in their favour as they went down to a dismal 2-0 defeat at Murrayfield on Wednesday night.

Playing in unfamiliar surroundings, Celtic were booed off at half-time and full-time as goals from Michal Zylo and Michal Kucharczyk ensured that the Hoops wouldn’t be competing in the Champions League this season following an embarrassing overall 6-1 scoreline.

Deila is under pressure to deliver and he admits that his side must improve.

He said: “I have to accept that is the level right now and have to work from here. I have a big job to do to improve as a team so we can win the league and get into the Europa League, which would be a good achievement for us.

“I have been here for six weeks but right now it is not good enough, from what I can see.”

He added: “We need to make the squad better by getting in new players but we also have to do the best with what is here. Right now, of course it is not good enough.

“I wasn’t embarrassed but I am not satisfied. I feel sorry for the players, they wanted it but we didn’t perform well enough and that is where we are.”
