Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths aims to finish on a high

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is determined to end the season on a positive note, having struggled to replicate his amazing form of last season.

Scotland international Griffiths racked up 40 goals in all competitions for the Bhoys last term, but has managed just 14 so far this season and has made just four appearances since the turn of the year.

However, Griffiths remains confident that he can prove his worth in the closing couple of months of the season, with Celtic still on course to complete a domestic treble.

He told the Glasgow Evening Times: “There are ten league games remaining now and I want to get my head down. I am just itching to play now.

“I just want the injuries to be behind me and serve a wee reminder between now and the end of the season of what I can do. I have goals in me, no doubt about that.”

With Griffiths having been hampered by fitness issues, he has seen his mantle of leading striker at Celtic Park pass to Moussa Dembele, who has found the net 32 times in all competitions so far this season.

The former Fulham frontman has made a massive impact in his first season in Scottish football, having already completed three hat-tricks.

He had also scored 12 goals in six games before drawing a blank in the 1-1 Scottish Premiership draw with Rangers last weekend.

Celtic are back in action on Sunday, when they head to Dundee, with Dembele 3.00 to score the first goal of the game and 1.44 to score at any time.
