KIERAN TIERNEY and Leigh Griffiths are stepping up their efforts to be fit for Celtic’s Premiership game against Ross County at Parkhead on Saturday.
First team coach John Kennedy admitted a decision will be delayed as long as possible on the injured duo.
However, he confirmed left-back Tierney was still receiving treatment following his withdrawal from the Scotland squad for the double-header against Costa Rica on Friday at Hampden and Hungary last night in Budapest.
Griffiths has been sidelined for two months following a calf injury sustained against Hibs at Parkhead on January 27 when he scored the only goal of the game.
Kennedy said: “Leigh’s back in training with the group again now.
“He’s been out for a period of time, so it’s just a case of getting him fit again and back on the pitch to help with the run-in.”Some of the guys who weren’t away such as Patrick Roberts and Marvin Compper have been training hard.
“Kieran is still receiving treatment, but, hopefully, we will know a bit closer to the game.”
