Celtic marksman Leigh Griffiths said he will be fit for the Champions League Group B opener with Paris St-Germain next week.

The 27-year-old experienced a “tight calf” while featuring for Scotland in their 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory against Malta on Monday evening.

“It’s all right. It was just a precaution,” Griffiths assured BBC Scotland. “I was running through on goal and I felt a wee kick to the back of my calf. The game was safe, they weren’t causing us problems and I’ve got a big month coming up for Celtic.”

THe Hoops first travel to Hamilton Academical in the Premiership on Friday and then host PSG the following Tuesday evening.

“I’ll be fine for Friday. I’ll go in tomorrow and see the physios and speak to the manager and see what he wants to do,” he added. “If he wants to rest me for Friday then be ready for Tuesday, happy days.”
