AGE HAREIDE has stuck the boot into Ronny Deila again... by giving Celtic's fitness levels another kicking.

The Malmo boss masterminded a famous Champions League success over the Hoops last month.

He claimed after the first leg that his Malmo side were far fitter as Celtic tired and insisted Deila's side 'do not have the legs for 90 minutes.'

It was a claim dismissed by his compatriot Deila, but the subsequent 2-0 home win was a comfortable success.

Now Hareide – who later admitted his bizarre rants against the Scottish media were pre-planned – has twisted the knife further by claiming Europa League opponents Molde can beat Celtic because they are fitter.

And he revealed the Swedish champions ran a combined total of 3.7 miles more than Celtic players in the Swedbank Stadion, proving his point.

Hareide said: "Molde have a good opportunity to get some wins in the Europa League.

"I don't think any of the teams in the group will enjoy playing on an artificial pitch in the freezing rain of winter in Molde.

"My advice to Molde against Celtic is to run.

"We ran a total of six kilometres more than Celtic in the home match.

"Molde must do this and work so hard. That's the important key to beating Celtic.

"Stefan Johansen is a very good playmaker. He is creative.

"They also have a good striker Leigh Griffiths, who is very active and must be kept quiet and they have plenty of speed on the wings.

"But if Molde's attackers are powerful and work hard and their full-backs and wingers push up frequently and make Celtic defend, they soon tire.

"The best teams in Norway are level with Celtic.

"As for the other teams, Ajax don't have the same qualities as before and you never know about the Turks.

"Certainly, Molde are capable of beating all the teams in the group at home."
