Hibs ace Griffiths would trade individual awards for Scottish Cup

Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths says he would trade in his individual accolades for this season's Scottish Cup.

The 22-year old ace, who has netted 28 goals whilst on loan from Wolves, has been named the Scottish Football Writers' Player of the Year, Clydesdale Bank SPL Player of the Year and the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year but admits he would rather triumph in Sunday's Scottish Cup final against Celtic at Wembley.

"The last few weeks have been surreal," he said.

"It's nice to pick up individual awards. But I'd definitely trade them all for a winner's medal on Sunday, 100 per cent I would.

"The Scottish Cup is a team award. We know we're going to have to play extremely well to beat Celtic.

"But hopefully, with a wee bit of luck, we can do it.

"I'm not going to sit here and say I haven't dreamed of walking up those stairs and lifting the Scottish Cup.

"I had the same dream last year when we played Hearts in the final and obviously it wasn't meant to be.

"But hopefully I can turn it around and collect a winner's medal this time."
