Video – Watch last night’s Goals from Leigh Griffiths

LEIGH GRIFFITHS returned to action last night at Lennoxtown and grabbed himself a couple of goals to give Neil Lennon a much needed additional striking option as the domestic programme resumes after the International Break.

Celtic had little difficulty in beating Stenhousemuir 6-0 and perhaps young Liam Burt, who got a hat-trick will also have caught the manager’s eye.

But it’s the return of the best Scottish striker Leigh Griffiths that will be boost to Lenny and also perhaps also the Scotland manager Steve Clarke.

Celtic have an intense schedule of matches between now and the winter break which starts after the Glasgow Derby match against the Rangers at Celtic Park on 29 December. And with Bayo out and Mohamed Elyounoussi also on the sidelines after hurting his foot in training with Norway, the return of Griffiths could be crucial for the Celtic manager.

Odsonne Edouard, who added yet another goal for the French Under 21s last night, is the only available striker at the moment. Welcome back Leigh, hopefully we’ll see you on Saturday!
