Celtic, along with arch rivals Rangers, are the best known teams in Scotland. They are the current Scottish Premiership champions and have never been relegated from Scotland's top league since they were founded in 1888. The team plays in green and white as a nod towards the club's Irish and Catholic roots. The club crest is a four leaf clover for the same reason.
The Old Firm derby is a world famous clash between the two Glasgow city teams and with Rangers just one season away from potentially returning to the top flight of Scottish football the club will be hoping new manager Ronny Deila settles in quickly and gets the Celtic team playing with an intensity and flair that will keep them at the top of the league. The Norwegian is a former defender himself and nicknamed 'Super Ronny' for his astute tactics and modern, flexible approach to football, man management, and preparation. A qualified teacher, Deila took relegation-bound Strømsgodset and made them Norwegian champions, cup winners, and Champions League qualifiers. Comparisons have been drawn to Borussia Dortmund's Jurgen Klopp, so fans are desperate to see the new boss run the rule and show off his talents.
The chance of performing in Europe once again keeps this club of interest to fans with a broader taste in football across the continent, so it's not just a home-grown fan base that will be cheering the Hoops on. Celtic boast an incredible tally of 45 Scottish League Championship titles, most recently added to last year where they took the title with a 29 point margin. In terms of football achievements, Celtic was the first football team to win a quintuple of trophies, claiming the league, Scottish cup, and European Cup in the process. More recently they reached the UEFA Cup final in 2003, losing in extra time to Porto, but success abroad has been limited since.
