Ronny Deila has been named as the new manager of Club Brugge.

The former Celtic boss takes over in the role from interim boss Rik De Mil and will be in place for the start of next season.

Brugge and Standard Liege agreed a compensation deal to see Deila free to make the switch in Belgium.

Deila began his management career with a brief stint at Norwegian fourth-tier club Brodd before a six-year stay at Strongodset.

From there, he moved to Celtic in 2014 where he would lift three trophies before stepping down at the end of the 2015/16 season.

Deila then joined Valerenga in 2017 and stayed at the club until a huge move to New York City in the MLS in 2020.

He celebrated victories in the MLS Cup and Easter Conference with NYCFC before heading to Belgian in 2022 with Standard Liege.
