LEIGH GRIFFITHS has broken his silence to hit back after tabloid stories this morning claim that The Celtic striker has a gambling problem.
And Griffiths has challenges these newspaper hacks to come forward with any evidence to the contrary if they have it. He took to social media this morning to get his response to the newspaper front page story this morning.
“Despite what has been written about me, rumoured or said to you from afar, I just want to settle one thing and make it clear once and for all,” Griffiths said.
“I am off work due to my mental health state. NOT GAMBLING, DRUGS, or any other issue that has been written about me since December.
“The stories, the tweets, the lies that come out people’s mouth is laughable, but I suppose if they’re talking about me, they are leaving someone else alone.
“If anyone would like to come forward with real evidence that suggests I’m off with the above mentioned either from my employers, or anyone else, let’s see it.
“I’m putting this out there now because family and friends are being asked questions and they’ve been told to say nothing.
“But I’ll not be silenced, especially by newspapers and idiots who can write tweets and make up stories and it grows arms and legs due to people’s sad and pathetic lives. LG!”

Griffiths has also been the subject of a disgraceful song sung by the Rangers supporters – that though says much more about them than it does about him.
