Leigh Griffiths reveals Celtic's main aim for 2015/16 campaign

Celtic Stands

Celtic are aiming for a strong performance in European competition next season.

Leigh Griffiths has told Celtic's official website that the side's main aim next season is to piece together a good European campaign.

Celtic missed out on playing in the Champions League this season, after losing in the qualification stages, but they are hoping to be much stronger next time around. 

“It won’t be hard for us to maintain our standards because this is Celtic and success is demanded," he said. You can’t drop your standards and the manager had that installed in us from day one.

“He [Ronny Deila] said this year that he wanted to go for the treble and we were very unlucky not to get there but next season we’ll want the exact same and to get to the Champions League as well. That’s the manager’s main aim and we’ll be looking to do that."

Celtic's chances of making into the Champions League group stages look to be much improved in 2015/16 as the whole squad is in a better place.

The Bhoys struggled to adapt to Ronny Deila's methods soon after he took over last summer, but they have fully adjusted to the Norwegian manager now.

Celtic maintained their standing as the dominant force in Scottish football this season and will be determined to carry that momentum into Europe with them.

If they can bring Champions League nights back to Parkhead, those experiences would be embraced by everyone connected with the club.

Celtic are famed for the atmosphere that they create in European competition and supporters of the club will be desperate to see their side taking on the continent's best in the near future.
