Leigh Griffiths Says Sorry to Scotland Fans After Missing Out on World Cup

Leigh Griffiths Says Sorry to Scotland Fans After Missing Out on World Cup

Leigh Griffiths has said sorry to Scotland‘s fans after the national team missed out on the World Cup.

The Celtic striker became a very important part of Gordon Strachan’s side during the second half of this qualifying campaign for Russia 2018.

He scored four goals and assisted two more as Scotland ended their campaign with an unbeaten run of six games.

But, ultimately, they failed to secure either an automatic qualification place or a spot in the playoffs despite going into Sunday’s game in Slovenia knowing a win would get them one.

Despite all that, Griffiths’ emergence means he can be proud of what he contributed – and it must leave plenty wondering what Scotland’s fate would have been had the Hoops hitman been thrown into the starting team earlier on.

Yet Griffiths has taken to Instagram to apologise to supporters for Scotland’s failure:

If only Strachan could follow some of his players in expressing their thanks to the supporters, who are ultimately devastated after another failure.

Andy Robertson apologised yesterday and other players have appeared understanding of the disappointment of the fans.

But Strachan has made more headlines for his ‘genetics’ excuse than anything else – something which isn’t going down well with the Tartan Army.
