Deila: We could have scored 10

Celtic boss Ronny Deila felt his side could have hit 10 goals as they swept aside St Mirren with a 4-1 victory.

Deila’s side moved six points clear in the Scottish Premiership after Scott Brown’s early double helped put them 3-1 up inside 18 minutes. James Forrest scored the third while Anthony Stokes grabbed the fourth.

Stefan Johansen, John Guidetti and Nir Bitton and Stokes all came close and Stefan Scepovic missed a hat-trick of sitters after replacing the injured Swedish striker.

“It’s hard sitting here and being critical when you’re winning 4-1 and could have scored 10, but again that shows the potential in the team.” Deila said.
