Breaking News ! Leigh Griffiths insists Celtic’s stars are driven to keep rewriting history. The Parkhead side head for Hampden on Sunday aiming to extend an astonishing domestic run of cup success. Having set new landmarks with 11 straight trophies and also winning a Treble Treble, Neil Lennon’s troops go into the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen looking to win a 35th consecutive cup-tie and stay on course to set a new benchmark. Twelve successive trophies and a quadruple Treble also go on the line against the Dons and Griffiths is adamant the squad is determined not to let their chance slip to make another mark on the annals of Scottish football. The frontman also declared Celtic are paying no mind to pundits criticising their start to the season.

We’ve won three straight Trebles, now we want to make it four. “We’re going for our own history. If it’s never been done, then that’s another incentive to make sure we go and get the job done. “If you look at guys like James Forrest and Scott Brown, they’ve got something like 19 and 21 winners medals although these guys have been here a lot longer than I have. “Whether we’re going for our eighth, ninth, tenth trophy on the bounce, or it’s boys who are going for their first, we want everybody to be a part of it and to be successful. “We know every year the challenge gets harder and Aberdeen will make things really difficult for us on Sunday. “We’ll need to turn up with the right attitude, make sure that everybody’s on point and that, by the end, we’re in another Final.” (Image: Alan Harvey/SNS Group) Celtic head for the National Stadium on a winless run of four games, but there were a host of positives in the midweek 2-2 Europa League draw with Lille. Neil Lennon’s troops have been heavily criticised at times in the past fortnight, but Griffiths insists it cuts no ice inside the dressing room. He said: “Listen, we don’t take any notice of what pundits or ex-players want to say about us. “They just want to stay in jobs, they want to give their 50 pence worth. But we don’t listen to them. “We know what we’ve got, we know the squad and backroom staff we’ve got. “We’re all fighting for the same cause, so anybody wants to disrupt us, well they can try and try and try.

. “We’re a great squad and a tight knit group. Everybody plays for the badge, everybody’s fighting for the same cause. “It would be very good for us to get a final. Ex-players and pundits who want to have a pop at us can say what they want and claim that we’re in a crisis. “Every club in the world will go through a difficult time at some stage. “It happens. But, we’re only two points off what we were last season, so to call that a crisis? Last season we ended up winning the league by 13 points.

We had a couple of bad results, no doubt. But we’re hoping to turn things around and what better way to start than by getting to a Cup final on Sunday.” Griffiths, meanwhile, insists his focus is only on Celtic and not regaining his Scotland spot. Steve Clarke’s side have their win-or-bust showdown against Serbia on Thursday week, but the striker has made it clear he’s got a job to do at Parkhead before even thinking about international recall. Griffiths said: “To be honest, the Scotland game is the furthest thing from my mind right now. I want to be back in Celtic’s starting eleven before I start thinking about pulling on a Scotland jersey. “I want to be fit, I want to be in the goals. If I get selected for it, then brilliant. If not, then the boys will get my best wishes for the game and, hopefully, they can go on and do the country proud and get us to the Euros. “But first and foremost, my club football is priority and I want to be training well and making sure I’m playing well here.”
