Ronny Deila reacts to Griffiths tiredness claims, discusses Mulgrew's contract talks

The Celtic boss has been discussing the striker and 30-year-old.

Ronny Deila has reacted to claims that star Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is tired.

The Norwegian says Griffiths is ready to play at his best and admits he is absolutely vital to the Bhoys' hopes in the Scottish Premiership.

As such, the Celtic boss insists Griffiths will be back on track again soon.

Deila has raved about the 25-year-old's finishing ability and isn't worried about his fitness or fatigue levels. He told reporters on Friday afternoon:

Meanwhile, the Norwegian also discussed contract talks with Charlie Mulgrew.

But the Celtic boss admits there is nothing new to say regarding the 30-year-old, as the Bhoys are simply concentrating of finishing their league season well. There's also the small matter of a cup tie against Rangers...

After that, Deila will take other things 'as they come.'

Celtic travel to Motherwell during Saturday's early kick-off, sitting five points clear of second-placed Aberdeen heading into the fixture.
