WOLVES manager Kenny Jackett has told striker Leigh Griffiths to forget about a move to Celtic and concentrate on scoring the goals to fire the club back into the Championship.

Griffiths admitted at the weekend that it would be “an honour” to play for the Scottish champions but Jackett insists the former Hibernian star is going nowhere.

“He’s not a player we’re particularly looking to sell,” he said. “It’s interesting to hear his comments on Celtic but they are a big club and, as a Scotland international now, that will be of some interest.

“Leigh’s not someone we’ve transfer-listed or are actively trying to sell but it’s all hypothetical anyway unless anyone comes in, whether that be Celtic or anyone else.

“He’s in a group working towards beating Bristol City on Saturday and trying to make up this four or five-point gap on the top two.

“That’s our focus and if anything comes around, we’ll deal with it as and when it does.”

Jackett also said the 23-year-old hasn’t been demanding a move. “He hasn’t been unsettled or expressed any desire to leave,” he said. “In terms of his attitude, it’s been fine and good. He’s had no problems nor has he caused us any problems, or expressed any desire to leave – and his attitude doesn’t convey that either.

“If something happens, we’ll see when the phone rings but it’s not something I’m going to worry about until the situation comes around.”
