Celtic central-midfielder Callum McGregor has told The Scottish Sun that he’s backing his teammate Leigh Griffiths to score against bitter rivals Rangers next weekend.
Brendan Rodgers Hoops team will take on Grame Murty’s Sveco side in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.
Griffiths has now scored 98 goals across all competition for Celtic since joining from Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2014 for a reported transfer fee of £900,000.
And he has been backed by his Scotland international international and Celtic teammate to score two goals against Rangers.
McGregor told the Scottish Sun:
“You can never back against Griff, he’s that type of player,”
“He’s a big-time player and once he gets one, he could get two or three. When he shoots, more often than not it goes in.
“Reaching 100 goals would be a special achievement for him. All the boys will be delighted and proud of him as well.”
The 27-year-old scored for his side at the weekend, and now that he’s fully back on his feet, Griffiths should be keen on starting against Rangers.
Rangers will not an easy side to play in the semi-finals, but Celtic boast of the better team and will head into the Scottish Cup semi-final clash as favourites to win the clash.
The Scottish champions, who are set to be crowned as the Scottish Premiership winner again this season, will be determined to make it a second domestic treble in a row.
