Celtic and Rangers latest: Celtic striker set to stay; McCoist backs Boyd

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Deila: Griffths in our plans

Ronny Deila says that Leigh Griffiths is in Celtic's plans for the season.

Griffiths has struggled to find a place in the first-team line-up so far under Deila's stewardship and he was linked with a loan move to Hibernian, but it appears that he is set to stay at Parkhead. 

"He's at Celtic and nothing is going on with Hibs," Deila said to Sky Sports. "He's here and he's been in our plans. There haven't been any real talks between the clubs."

Deila admits to making too many changes

Ronny Deila has operated with something of a rotational policy since taking over at Celtic, but he admits that he made too many changes against Motherwell at the weekend.

The Bhoys struggled to get going in the match and slumped to a 1-1 draw, and Deila explained that he may have made an error. 

"In the game against Motherwell there were maybe too many changes," he said to the Evening Times. "You could see that in the first-half."

Jon Daly looking to take his chance

Rangers' returning striker Jon Daly says that he is looking to impress after being given his first team chance.

The striker has made some fleeting appearances following a return from injury and he is hoping to firmly establish himself as a permanent fixture in the Celtic line-up now. 

"You have to take your chance when it comes. If you are in the team, you have to do your best to stay in it," he said to the Evening Times. 

Ally McCoist gives Boyd backing

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has backed Kris Boyd to start firing once he breaks out of his poor form.

The striker hasn't managed to score in the previous four matches he has played, leading to calls for him to be dropped, but McCoist seems to be keeping his faith in his misfiring forward. 

"He needs to score a goal just because he wants to score a goal. For no other reason than that," McCoist explained to the Evening Times. 

"We're all convinced he'll soon be off and running."
