Leigh Griffiths says an in-form Celtic are untouchable

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has warned Scottish Cup final opponents Motherwell that no team in Scotland can touch them when they are on form.

Griffiths is in confident mood after coming off the bench to help Celtic to a 4-0 semi-final victory over Rangers although he recognises that Motherwell have held Celtic twice at Fir Park this season.

“It will be difficult,” the striker said, in advance of the final at Hampden Park on May 19. “We went to Fir Park recently and they were difficult to break down. They got a clean sheet against us.

“They will be wanting to stop us clinching that treble, but when we bring our A game, then there’s nobody can touch us.”

Celtic are focused on a different trophy this week with the chance to clinch a seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title on Saturday.

Three points against Hibernian at Easter Road would seal matters before Celtic face Rangers again the following weekend. And, while many Hoops fans would no doubt welcome the chance to seal the championship in front of their rivals, Griffiths does not want to wait.

The former Hibs striker said: “Everyone in the changing room wants to get it sown up as quickly as possible, whether that be the first game or the last game.

“We will look forward to Saturday and prepare properly and respect Hibs, as we always do, but we will go there looking to get three points.

“That’s our aim now. We had a job to do at Hampden, we have done it, got to the cup final and now our main focus is back on the league.”
