Video: Lewis Morgan Sets-up Leigh Griffiths For a Stunning Ronaldo-Esque Overhead-Kick

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths showed he’s been watching Real Madrid closely this afternoon during training, after scoring an absolute belter of an overhead-kick.

Griffiths and his Hoops team-mates returned for pre-season training at their Lennoxtown complex on Monday, and it seems as though the Scotland international has been practising a few skills and tricks during his down-time.

As the man himself showed off on Instagram this afternoon, new signing Lewis Morgan provided a pin-point cross for Griffiths, but rather than taking it down and controlling the ball, or using his head, Griffiths decided to go for the spectacular – and, boy, he really pulled it off:

Griffiths endured a frustrating campaign last season, which was frequently interrupted by various different injuries and suspensions, but it seems the 27-year-old is keen to make amends.

If he’s pulling tricks like this out in training, God only knows what he’s got lined-up for the start of the new Premiership season, eh?

What do you think of the goal?
