Celtic recorded a 1-0 win against their Old Firm rivals on Sunday as they edged the Scottish League Cup semi-final, setting up a meeting with Aberdeen in the final.
Brendan Rodgers’ side had the better of the chances during the game, with goalkeeper Matt Gilks saving well from Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic in the first-half.
In-form striker Moussa Dembele finally scored the decisive goal in the 87th minute, after converting a cross from substitute Griffiths.

Celtic have now won both meetings with their great rivals Rangers this season and followed up the impressive 5-1 demolition from their league encounter.
Griffiths was once again restricted to the bench by Rodgers and the club’s current first-choice striker Dembele was the hero again.
The striker has struggled to land a starting role this season and completed 90 minutes in just five of his 15 appearances.
Griffiths was in phenomenal form last season and fired Celtic to the league title, scoring 40 goals in 51 appearances across all competitions.
