The Norwegian has swapped Stromsgodset for life in the fast lane at Celtic Park after being named as Neil Lennon's successor.
He has arrived in Glasgow with a burgeoning reputation as one of the brightest young coaches in the game, but will be under intense scrutiny as the Hoops bid for a fourth straight top-flight crown and place in the Champions League group stages.
The new boss will meet his squad for the first time today when the players report for pre-season training at Celtic's Lennoxtown base.
A number of Deila's predecessors have decided to give themselves breathing space in the job by choosing not to stay in Glasgow.
And the 38-year-old is now set to follow suit as he gears up for his first season in the Celtic Park dugout.
Deila said: "I haven't been in the street yet, I've been working all weekend on other things. I don't think I'll have a problem with that.
"I know when you're Celtic manager you're Celtic manager 24 hours a day.
"If you make that choice to go out on the streets you have to handle it. If you don't want it, you stay home.
"That's my choice and I will have the same values of respect in the street as in all the other places. I want to make people proud I'm the Celtic manager. That's important.
"I'm not going to stay in the city, I'd rather stay outside so I can choose myself if I want to be in the chaos or not!"
