LEIGH Griffiths has predicted the chance to complete 10-In-A-Row next season will convince all of his Celtic team mates to remain at Parkhead.

And the Scotland forward believes if will be very difficult for their top flight rivals to stop them from making history and winning the Ladbrokes Premiership if they do.

Griffiths's strike partner Odsonne Edouard, who scored 28 goals in the 2019/20 campaign, has been attracting interest from clubs in Germany in recent weeks.

Elsewhere, James Forrest and Callum McGregor have both been targeted by outfits in Europe and England in the past.

However, the former Wolves player is confident the highly-prized trio, and Neil Lennon's other key men, will be keen to stay in Glasgow next term.

"Our players will always be linked with moves elsewhere," he told BT Sport. "Cal, James, Odsonne, they will all be linked with big-money moves.

"It's not to say they don't deserve it, they do as they've been at the top of their game for so long now.

"But I think it will be in their heads to stay for one more season, get to the 10 and leave with everybody's best wishes. That would be the perfect scenario.

Griffiths continued: "I think it will be very difficult for teams to stop us.

"But you know, let's see them have a go - Aberdeen, Hibs, Motherwell and Rangers especially will all be trying to stop us.

"But it's all about us. If we bring our A-game to 90 to 95 per cent of the games it's going to be very difficult to teams."

Celtic's ninth consecutive Premiership win was particularly sweet for Griffiths as he had to overcome off-field issues and injury to contribute to it.

The 29-year-old, who netted eight times after the winter shutdown, admitted there was a danger he could have been moved on if he had been unable to find his form.

"The first couple of months when I came back were great," he said. "It was good being back involved with the boys but then I got injured and you struggle to get your fitness back.

"There were a lot of rumours about stuff, that you might be moved on. January was the crossroads for me.

"If I hadn't gone away and worked hard in Dubai, and showed the manager I wanted to be here and force my way into the side, it could have been a whole different story.

"It just goes to show how good my mental strength is. To go to Dubai, work hard and get fitter by the day.

"When I got my chance, I was ready to be called upon and I put in the performances that kept my place in the team.

Griffiths added: "Going away we had a few days to reflect on the defeat (to Rangers at Parkhead at the end of December). Then we had a team meeting before the first training session in Dubai.

"It was said that: 'We might need to go unbeaten from now until the end of the season to make sure we are champions'.

"After that it was about topping up the fitness as much as we could, and also enjoying ourselves as well.

"You need to remember that we'd played 40-odd games by the turn of the year. Boys were running on empty a bit so we had to relax in Dubai, but also put the work in.

"When we came back it was like we had a new lease of life. We just blitzed teams along the way."

He admitted he never expected to be a part of the Celtic side that equalled the feat first recorded by Jock Stein's legendary side in the 1960s and 1970s.

"I was surprised to get my move in the first place," he said. "But to be here six years later on nine and on the cusp of ten is something you can only dream of.

"When I first arrived, the fans were singing for 10 and you don't really believe it. Now we do believe."
