Leigh Griffiths reveals details of the Deila meeting that changed his season

The Celtic striker admits he had to speak with his manager and assistant boss John Collins.

Celtic's man of the moment Leigh Griffiths admits he had to sit down with his manager to turn his season around, according to the club's official Twitter feed.

The 24-year-old netted a hat-trick for the Bhoys during a 4-1 victory over Kilmarnock on Wednesday night as the Scottish champions came from behind to win.

But Griffiths hasn't had everything all his own way this term, especially at the start of the season - when the forward wasn't starting for Celtic.

To transform his fortunes, Griffiths admits he had to seek out boss Ronny Deila and assistant manager John Collins to find out what they wanted to see from him.

As for his ambitions for the rest of the season, meanwhile, Griffiths wasn't necessarily happy with his hat-trick against Kilmarnock.

To be precise, the Celtic striker wasn't happy with stopping there, now setting himself the aim of starting every game possible between now and the end of the campaign - and scoring as many goals as he can.

With Kilmarnock now overcome, Celtic's next challenge is a huge one: this weekend's Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, against the side they failed to beat last weekend: Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
