LEIGH GRIFFITHS has warned his Celtic team-mates to beware Saturday’s Scottish Cup rivals Dundee.
The striker, who spent a season in 2011 at Dens Park, said: “I’ve been back a couple of times with Hibs and once with Celtic and every time the fans have been fine.
“I think they just remember the good things I did for the club during the dark days of administration when I had the chance to leave, but I stayed to help them out of a sticky situation.
“I loved my time there.”
But Griffiths, who helped the Hoops to the next month’s League Cup Final showdown with Dundee United with a wonderful header in the 2-0 win on Sunday, now has his old team in his sights.
Dundee knocked out Aberdeen in the fourth round while the Dons were in the midst of an eight-match winning run and Griffiths knows Paul Hartley’s team will be determined to end Ronny Deila’s treble ambitions.
The hitman, who scored in the 1-1 draw on Tayside in August, said: “We went there last time, and dropped two points and, to be honest, we were lucky to come away with a point.
“They had good chances in the last 10-15 minutes and really should have buried us and put us out of sight.
“Dundee were tipped for relegation at the start of the season and then hit a little bit of a sticky patch.
“But they have picked up good results recently and they beat Aberdeen in the last round of the competition, so they will be looking forward to trying to take another scalp.”
