Celtic Player DM'd PSG Star Asking Him To Come To Scotland

Leigh Griffiths has declared he will soon be back scoring goals and lifting trophies for Celtic.

"Sometimes that's just about getting games elsewhere".

Celtic have lost four league matches this term, matching their overall tally for the previous campaign, while Rodgers was undefeated domestically in his first season. Physically he's very good, very fast and is a strong player.

"I think it will be tight".

"It is a wonderful moment for me, and such a blessing with such a great coach like Brendan Rodgers to lead me in the right direction". Other teams have invested well and improved.

'The boys are out here with us, training, and then we'll see when we get back'. "That'll be interesting. I've never been before so I'm really excited for that".

Citing Ryan Christie as an example of a fringe player who extracted the benefits of going out on loan, the Parkhead boss added: 'It's just about time.

However, when asked about the Ibrox club's transfer activity, he said he was "not one for looking over the fence" and was focused on trying "to look after my own garden".

The nearly forgotten about Scott Allan will have his contract torn up with Hibs favourite to sign the midfielder. With the quality of players they have, it's hard for him to get in and get any game-time.

'There is an interest in a number of our players, ' admitted Rodgers.

Rodgers said the 23-year-old has "clearly got potential" but that the 12 months since he signed from Dundee have "been a steep learning curve".

"The markets changed quite considerably really when you lose players".

Given had a fantastic football career and some may not know the Irishman was actually in Celtic's youth system back in the 90s before the club let him go.

"He's at that age when he needs to be playing for the continuation of his development".
