CELTIC striker Leigh Griffths is zeroing in on becoming a Ton-Up Bhoy this season.
The fit-again frontman, who could make a comeback against Ross County today after a two-month absence with a calf injury, is currently on 97 strikes.
Now Griffiths has the magical 100 in his sights and said: “That is my aim. I have no doubt that if I stay injury free I will get that 100 mark. It has been a long time coming, but when I hit it, it will be a great achievement.
“It has been long. It’s been depressing. These calf injuries have been a nightmare since the manager came in, but, hopefully, I have found the cause of it and it is finally fixed.
“It is disappointing when you are missing first-team matches, but the most important thing is you need to get back fit and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Hopefully, that’s the end of the problems.
“I have been working really hard to get back to full fitness and, hopefully, that is me raring to go.
“We have big, important games coming up. The quicker we can get the points on the board to secure the title the better – then everyone can have fun.”
Griffiths was pictured celebrating among the Hoops fans as 10-man Celtic came from behind to win 3-2 at Ibrox earlier this month.beat Rangers.
However, the former Livingston, Dundee, Wolves and Hibs hitman added: “Of course, it was enjoyable to watch the boys winning and move closer to the title.
“It was frustrating not to be involved in the celebrations on the park, but I had a good time in the stands with the rest of the fans.”
