These were the best Celtic manager jokes as under-fire Ronny Deila announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Norwegian’s fate was sealed by a penalty shoot-out defeat to bitter rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final, so it would appear that he’s jumped before getting pushed.

Names tipped to take over include David Moyes and Deila’s predecessor Neil Lennon, while the likes of Roy Keane and Malky Mackay have refused to rule out taking up the Celtic Park hot seat.

With speculation mounting as to who will succeed Deila, here are the best Celtic manager jokes:

Ronny Deila "leaving" Celtic, similar to how I "left" the nightclub on my 18th birthday, in the arms of the bouncer, covered in vomit.
