Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths: I'll be even better next season

Celtic Football Club

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is hoping to build on his impressive end-of-season run of form in the 2015/16 campaign.

Leigh Griffiths has sent out a warning to the rest of the Scottish Premiership in the Glasgow Evening Times today, saying that he wants to be even better next season.

Griffiths has netted 15 times in his last 20 games to take his tally to 18 for the campaign, but he is not resting on his laurels.

The 24-year-old says that he is aiming to score with even greater regularity next term, as he looks to build upon his impressive run of form.

"I go through phases where I play against certain sides and score against them all season," he said. "I'm just trying to build on what I did last season. And I then want to build on even more next term."

Griffiths has firmly established himself as Celtic's main striking hope with his form towards the back end of the campaign and if he continues to net his current rate, then he will become a firm fans' favourite at Parkhead.

Griffiths made a slow start after joining the Bhoys, but he looks the part now and next season will be a huge one for him.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers man is likely to have plenty of chances in Ronny Deila's attacking team and it will be up to him to prove that he can maintain his standards over a prolonged period of time.

If he can, then Celtic will be in a very strong position to continue their dominance of Scottish football and the Bhoys will have a new striking hero to salute.
