GRIFFITHS: RODGERS TAKES NO RISKS

0

LEIGH GRIFFITHS has suffered a setback in his battle for fitness.

The Celtic striker will not be with the Celtic squad when they jet out to Norway today for the second leg of the Champions League tie against Rosenborg tomorrow night.

Brendan Rodgers, with his side leading 3-1 from last week’s first game, has decided not to take any risks with the frontman who only returned to training on Thursday after struggling with a thigh strain.

Griffiths is being left at home to continue working on his match fitness ahead of Saturday’s Flag Day against Livingston at Parkhead and the start of another assault on the Premiership title.

Moussa Dembele will miss the encounter and Rodgers will be hoping Odsonne Edouard comes through the tie in Trondheim without mishap.
