Leigh Griffiths could be back in the frame for some game time this weekend as Celtic move into the final strait.

The Celtic striker has been sidelined with a calf issue since the end of January and sought specialist advice as he looked to get to the bottom of the recurring injury.

He has used the break for international football to get himself back to fitness and Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the forward could be in line for a jersey against Ross County.

“Leigh Griffiths has trained well over the last couple of weeks,” said the Celtic manager. “Hopefully he will be available for the weekend.”

Rodgers went on to suggest that Kieran Tierney will remain sidelined for the next few games as Celtic look to nurse the fullback’s return from a tight calf.

However, as the possibility of a back-to-back treble now looms into view, Rodgers will welcome the chance of a squad that is coming into full strength.

“I think we are entering into a really exciting time,” he said. “It is another period of the season where there is a chance to rewrite the history book and we will need everyone – players and supporters.

“It has been a brutal season, essentially back-to-back and to try to do that and do the job the way the players have done on the back of last season has been very good.

“We get another chances again now in these 9 or 10 games so finish hopefully another historic season. But the message to the players will be that we look to the next game.”

One player who will expect to feature prominently could be Jack Hendry.

The January signing from Dundee made his full international debut against Hungary this week with Rodgers as enthused as anyone about the showing from the 22-year-old.

“I thought he was outstanding in the game,” said Rodgers. “He has all the attributes to be an international football. If you’re going to play in a high-tempo style you’ve got to have good technique, have an idea of the game tactically, physically be able to run, have speed, be dynamic and mentally have the composure to play and defend

“So for his first game I thought he was absolutely fabulous and showed real promise for going forward.

“My reason for bringing him here was I believe he can develop into a top-class player.

“He made one tackle in the game that I’m not sure many Scottish centre-halves could make because he was quick, the speed to get across the ground and cover was absolutely brilliant.

“He needs coaching, he needs developing but, of course, he needs opportunity. He has all the attributes, he’s 6ft 3, he’s quick and can play.”

Rodgers has revealed that the first time Hendry came to his attention was in a game against Celtic. The player left an impression on Rodgers with the way he handled the Hoops forward line and he has been enthused at the manner in which Hendry has responded to the challenge of stepping up a gear at Celtic.

“I think that Jack isn’t the norm for a Scottish centre-half,” observed Rodgers.

“If you are looking at international qualities and top-level qualities, then he has all of those, but sometimes players like that don’t get an opportunity.

“I didn’t know of him at all until he played against us at Parkhead. I’d seen videos of him leading up to us playing them, and I obviously knew he wasn’t at Dundee the year before.

“You very quickly see that he has speed and technique, and these are the attributes that I like in my team.

“And of course, if they have a personality and a profile to go with that, then it’s just about opportunity.

“Since we were able to do the deal with Dundee, he’s come in and settled in really well here.

“He knows that he’s still got a lot to improve upon, but the beauty with Jack is that he’s still very hungry to learn, and he’s in the perfect environment to do that.

“All you can do as a management team is look at other players. Sometimes they might not always complement your style of play but, with Jack, it’s a good fit and there’s a great platform for him here to improve.”

Hendry was not the only one who caught the eye this week.

Kristoffer Ajer won two Norwegian caps after impressing for Lars Lagerback’s side.

“I thought in terms of the Celtic boys all of them did well over the international break,” said Rodgers. For Kristoffer it’s an amazing story really. He came in as a central midfield player but my view on him was he’s probably have a greater career as a centre-half.

“Again similar to Jack but a bit taller, he’s 6ft 5, he’s quick, needed to learn how to head the ball, he’s hungry and he’s technically very good.

“So for him to sustain the run in the team and play really well for Celtic, it’s opened the door for him to now play two 90 minutes (for Norway). I don’t think that was the plan initially but he’s obviously done so well that he’s played over the course of the two games.

“It’s a great story but thankfully he’s a boy that still wants to learn and get better. At 19, he’s got a great career ahead of him.

“They’re all back fit and well and looked good in training.”
