A Host of Ex-Footballers Have Sent Their Support to Leigh Griffiths

A Host of Ex-Footballers Have Sent Their Support to Leigh Griffiths

A whole host of ex-footballers have sent their support and offers of assistance to Leigh Griffiths this afternoon after the Celtic striker was ruled out indefinitely due to ongoing ‘personal issues’.

Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the Scotland international will be left out for the foreseeable future during his weekly media conference this afternoon, and admitted his absence is nothing to do with any muscular or physical injury.

As you can probably imagine, the news prompted quite a reaction on social media, most of which was positive, and Griffiths will no doubt take some solace when he sees messages from Celtic players from the past.

Perhaps this lot can empathise with Griffiths somewhat, given they all know about the massive pressure that’s involved in pulling on that iconic green and white jersey every week:

Griffiths will miss Celtic’s Europa League showdown with RB Salzburg on Thursday night, and it remains to be seen when he’ll be back in action, but the priority for everyone at the moment is just seeing him get back to his old self.

Get well soon, Leigh.
