More injury woes for Leigh Griffiths

LEIGH GRIFFITHS will miss the second round of Champions League qualifiers against Varur or Rosenborg after manager Brendan Rodgers revealed that the unfortunate striker has suffered yet another injury blow.

The Celtic number 9 will be sidelined for around 3 weeks as he recovers from the latest set-back.

“Leigh, along with Jonny Hayes, is probably two or three weeks away. We’ll know more in a few weeks’ time.

“It’s really unfortunate for him but that’s how football works.

“For any player, when you miss a period of pre-season it’s always difficult, especially if you’ve worked hard.

“You want to be at a good level and get as much of your fitness in during this period, so it’s unfortunate for any player that’s out.”
