Celtic boss Ronny Deila took the positives from the 1-1 draw with Dynamo Dresden in Germany.

“It was a very tough game with the heat and I’m proud of the boys” – Ronny Deila

Kris Commons gave the visitors an early lead later cancelled out by Sylvano Calvanious in particularly hot conditions.

“It was a very tough game with the heat and I’m proud of the boys as they worked hard for 90 minutes after I had trained them hard yesterday and then they had the long trip to Germany,” Deila told Celtic’s official website. “The result was ok and now it’s all about getting energy into the game on Tuesday.

“We had a lot of chances in the first half and again at the start of the game but we need those periods to be longer,” he added. “Every player got 45 minutes in a nice stadium with a good atmosphere so it was worth it.”

The visitors included recent goalkeeper signing Craig Gordon from the start of the game, while Icelandic forward Holmbert Fridjonsson earned a debut from the bench.
