Leigh Griffiths is hoping for a "long" deal at Celtic as his contract talks reach their conclusion.

The Scotland international says it has not been easy to cope with the uncertainty but expected the deal to be done within the next few weeks.

"It's still ongoing, these things are never easy, but it's almost completed now and hopefully in the next couple of weeks it will be done and dusted," said Griffiths.

"It's been going on for a number of months now and these things aren't easy to deal with, so hopefully in a couple of weeks it will be done.

"I'm not very sure about the length of the contract. That's something my representatives in the club will deal with and hopefully it's a nice, long contract."
