Leigh Griffiths Close to Return? Celtic Striker Drops Hint on Instagram

Leigh Griffiths Close to Return? Celtic Striker Drops Hint on Instagram

Is Leigh Griffiths close to a Celtic return?

The Scottish striker hasn’t been in a Hoops squad since appearing as a substitute in their 5-1 win over Kilmarnock on December 8th last year.

He was given time away from the club by Brendan Rodgers to deal with personal issues, but has been back training in recent weeks.

Up until now, though, there’s been no update as to Griffiths’ status in the Celtic squad.

Brendan Rodgers had given no update before his departure to Leicester City and Neil Lennon hasn’t given one either.

But Griffiths has dropped a hint on Instagram, posting a picture of himself alongside the new Hoops manager:

That could be a very welcome boost for Celtic if they get a fit and in form Griffiths back for the season run-in.

Rodgers had to deal with just Odsonne Edouard as his only available striker for the majority of the first half of the season as Griffiths dealt with injury and off-field issues.

But Vakoun Issouf Bayo and Oliver Burke arrived in January – and Griffiths’ return would give Celtic some formidable options in attack.
