Massive blow for Celtic as striker Leigh Griffiths picks up injury

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been hit with a blow ahead of the Europa League clash against FC Copenhagen on Thursday night after Leigh Griffiths sustained an injury.

Griffiths and defender Greg Taylor did not make the travelling squad to Denmark for the first leg of the Last 32 fixture including Hatem Abd Elhamed who has been on the sidelines for some time.

"Hatem Elhamed did not travel, Greg Taylor picked up an injury at the weekend and Leigh Griffiths picked up an injury in training, a slight twinge," as quoted by The Herald.

"I'm hoping the latter two will be fit for the weekend.

"We can use both systems, we are comfortable with both and we have a fair idea of how we want to play tomorrow.

"I expect a difficult game, tactically they are smart. We are in good form, confidence is good. I am not taking anything for granted but we are looking forward to the game.

"The stadium is magnificent, I have just been out looking at it, the pitch has been re-laid and looks good and the players will get very excited about the game when they get here.

"I touched on a couple of injuries but I have a good complement of players here as well.

"Confidence is good but obviously we are not taking anything for granted in terms of Copenhagen.

"They are a strong team and they are difficult to beat."
