A former Celtic manager is set to make an emotional return to the club next month.

Ronny Deila, 48,  is set to make a guest appearance at Celtic's end-of-season awards night in May.

The Player of the Year event is due to be held at the OVO Hydro this year.

As well as Deila, there will e a number of other former players in attendance such as Chris Sutton, Aiden McGeady, Stan Petrov and John Hartson.

Kyle Falconer, frontman of The View, will also be there to perform on Sunday, May 12.

Deila - who won two league titles and a League Cup during his time in Glasgow - is the latest guest to be announced on social media. 

A post reads: "Former #CelticFC Manager, Ronny Deila, will be another of our star-studded award presenters at a very special #CelticPOTY Awards event at the OVO Hydro on Sunday May 12, 2024."

While Deila did enjoy success at Celtic, he was unable to properly capitalise on Rangers' absence from the Premiership and assert Celtic's dominance on Scottish football.

The final nail in the coffin for his career at Parkhead was a defeat on penalties in a Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers.

He was most recently the manager of Club Brugge before being sacked. 

Deila has also enjoyed spells with New York City and Standard Liege.
