Former Celtic boss Ronny Deila has been appointed head coach of New York City.

The Norwegian joins the MLS side on a three-year contract from Valerenga in his home country, pending the approval of a US work permit.

Deila won two Scottish Premiership titles and a Betfred Cup when he was manager at Parkhead between 2014 and 2016 and he is relishing the task ahead.

He said: "When the opportunity came up to join New York City FC as their new head coach, it was a dream come true for me to manage an amazing club in a great city."
