Ronny Deila: 'Leigh Griffiths not joining Hibernian'

Leigh Griffiths will not be joining Hibernian on a loan deal, according to Celtic head coach Ronny Deila.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has insisted that Leigh Griffiths will not be allowed to join Hibernian.

Alan Stubbs, who is the current boss of Hibs, recently conceded that he was keen to re-sign the 24-year-old on an emergency three-month loan deal.

However, Deila has revealed that the striker is in his "plans" for the future at Parkhead.

"He's at Celtic and nothing is going on with Hibs. He's here and he's been in our plans. There haven't been any real talks between the clubs," he told the Daily Record.

Griffiths, who had two-year loan stint with Hibs between 2011 and 2013, joined Celtic in January from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
