GOSSIP MONGERS have been busy sharing and spreading the latest batch of unfounded, damaging and frankly, nasty rumours about Celtic Star Leigh Griffiths.
This morning the player responded by posting a video of his and some teammates in the gym at Lennoxtown. He didn’t add any words, just the ‘shush face’ and ‘eyes’ emojis. ‘Shut yer mouths, here’s proof that you’re talking Craigy Whyte’ seems to be the message.

I honestly wish people would give Leigh Griffiths a break. It's almost as if folk are actively seeking some sort of scandal. He's training and will be back in no time banging in the goals and shutting each and every shitehawk up.

Neil Lennon has explained at several Media Conferences – all reported on here – that Griffiths has been missing from first team action due to a thigh strain coupled with a virus but that hasn’t shut up the gossips.
And the latest rumour at the end of last week, that Griffiths would be going out on loan in January was also shot down by the manager.
“Leigh won’t go on loan in January. He’s too good a player. He just needs more time to get up to speed.
“Leigh isn’t fit just now. He’s had a thigh strain and is starting back training.
“He had a virus that kept him out of the squad for Hibs and isn’t fit enough at the minute to figure.
“That’s where we are. He needs to do a bit more cardio work, so he’s not in the squad at the minute because he’s working back from that injury,” the Celtic manager told the Media last Friday.

This is the Leigh Griffiths we all love.
He's grown up a lot since he came to Celtic, and is deserving of our empathy.
Celtic and the support means a lot to him.
All critics should please take a back seat, leave it till he's settled back. pic.twitter.com/qyFdAgctsz
