Leigh Griffiths reacts on Twitter to Celtic win, looks ahead to Rangers clash

Celtic

The Bhoys forward is looking ahead to the Scottish League Cup semi-final against Rangers.

Leigh Griffiths admitted Celtic's 1-0 win over Ross County was not the greatest of games on Twitter - but is delighted nevertheless to still be top of the Scottish Premiership after another win.

The one-goal victory took Celtic three points above second-placed Aberdeen, with Ronny Deila's side still having a game in hand over the Dons.

And Griffiths was pleased with a result that improves yet further Celtic's 2015. His focus, however, is now on a huge Scottish League Cup semi-final against Rangers, which takes place next Sunday.

Since Celtic returned from their warm-weather training camp, every league game has been won by the Bhoys, with Kris Commons' deflected strike earning them the three points yesterday afternoon.

What wonders Gran Canaria, a simply beautiful island, seems to have done for the Scottish champions.

Their recent success, though, will count for nothing should they fail to beat Rangers next weekend. For all the turmoil Rangers have suffered, Celtic fans only need look south to the English FA Cup to see how a knockout competition can distort matters.

Both Manchester City & Chelsea lost to lower-league opposition yesterday, while Tottenham lost at home to Leicester and Liverpool & Manchester United (on Friday night) drew with lower-league opposition.

Griffiths, then, is right to emphasise the enormity of the Celtic - Rangers clash. And all eyes will be on the cup in the coming days.
