Leigh Griffiths reacts on Twitter to cup draw, Collins gives his thoughts

Celtic FC Fans

The Celtic striker and assistant manager were discussing the Scottish League Cup semi-final draw.

Leigh Griffiths took to Twitter on Monday afternoon after the Scottish League Cup semi-final draw was announced.

Celtic will face Ross County and the 25-year-old insists it will be a challenging game.

Of course, the formbooks suggest Celtic are heavy favourites, with the Bhoys winning 4-1 at Ross County just yesterday.

Griffiths himself, meanwhile, scored just twice in three minutes and will likely be in among the goals if he isn't injured when the semi-final comes around.

Meanwhile, Celtic assistant boss John Collins spoke to the press after the draw was made.

He admits the Bhoys will be big favourites but suggests that poses a danger. Indeed, Collins feels County will go into the game with nothing to lose.

A similar situation presented itself last season, when the Bhoys faced Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup semi-finals - and duly lost:

Celtic will naturally be aiming to defend their Scottish League Cup title and go one better to secure a domestic treble.

It will be interesting to see how fans and pundits alike view the Bhoys' season if they fail in Europe but do end up winning all three Scottish trophies available to them.
