Leigh Griffiths has hit the headlines again this week. It’s important not to speculate and gossip when it comes to Leigh. After all, the media and many in the Scottish game are no friends of the striker. Griffiths has been doubted, vilified and frankly lied about in the past. He has also done wrong by his own admittance. One common theme is that he always bounces back.
Rumours circulated last year that Leigh’s time at Parkhead was up. Certain club’s fans even sang about how ‘he won’t be playing football anymore.’ In the end, Griffiths earned his league winner’s medal having struck up a superb partnership with Odsonne Edouard and hitting a lethal run of form before coronavirus hit the UK.
Griffiths is a man who has a huge impact for Celtic at all levels. He is a goalscorer and a menace for opposition. Neil Lennon and the Celtic staff know the details, the matter is for them and Leigh to resolve, and I’m confident they will.
In the meantime, here’s a reminder of how important the Leith man can be for Celtic. He really was in sensational form as he fired a hat-trick on Celtic’s last outing way back in March.
