On target: Celtic’s Mohamed Elyounoussi reacts to his goal

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has praised the reaction of Leigh Griffiths to his fitness ultimatum and hopes his squad can be further boosted in the transfer market this week.

Griffiths will feature in today's pre-season fixture against Hibernian after Lennon gave 90 minutes to most of his probable season-opener starting XI in a 2-0 friendly win over Ross County yesterday.

Only Greg Taylor went off, with an injury which is unlikely to keep him out of Celtic's first Scottish Premiership clash against Hamilton next Sunday.
