Leigh Griffith's over and out

Taking the Aberdeen incident out of the occasion that probably makes this worse than it is. But, how many chances does Leigh need to screw the heed?!? Flabbergasted by the lads attitude to the cause which zero. Massive season ahead for us and the guy doesn't have a care in the world. No wonder Lennon wants two strikers.

Leigh is still an asset with capabilities in front of goal that not to many can equal let alone surpass.
He is being hounded by the hun press to help destroy his career and our 10 in a row ambitions.
He's not without his faults but who isn't.
His talent has to be harnessed for the betterment of his career and this club.
Hopefully thats the way it'll be managed.

Griff reminds me of gazza in many ways, great player when playing, but when not, mind wanders, boredom sets in, gets himself into trouble, loses focus, makes poor decisions, changed the game last preseason game v hibs when he came on, looked up for it.....needs to get back playing and aff social media ASAP, no doubt is Celtic career in hanging by a thread.....😢

I've been a fan of him for years and his goalscoring ability is second to none when he's on his game.

Bearing that in mind.........GET HIM GONE!

He's had more chances than he deserves. He clearly isn't the brightest light on the Christmas tree and we all know he has his issues with certain things.

At some point though we have to say enough is enough. If his mental issues are such that he can't cope with the day to day pressures of playing top level football then he shouldn't be in the game, it's as simple as that.

I have sympathy with his problems, but EVERYONE has problems to some extent. When those problems impact on your ability to do the job you're paid (very handsomely) to do then for the sake of your own health and wellbeing it's time to take yourself out of the firing line and concentrate on becoming as healthy as possible.

I wish him well but from a footballing point of view it's abundantly clear he can no longer hold down a place at a club the stature of Celtic FC.

Well said JJ and I agree 100% hes not the first extremely talented player with personality flaws but he is giving ammo to the rags and that has to stop. The club have stood by him as have our supporters but for his long? As long as hes doing the damage he can write whatever he likes on social media as far as I'm concerned. Could you imagine the likes of di Canio or viduka having access to todays social media ? Lol

Nonsense, there is not a single picture to show Leigh at the party , small gathering , few friends , nothing to see here , hun press as usual making a mountain out of a mole hill , if you think getting rid of griff is the right thing to do that is your opinion but for me , no chance , he stays , he scores he is here for the 10

You don't actually believe for a single nano-second that Leigh wasn't at the party do you?

This party happened and NO journalist would refuse to use that type of story hot on the heels of the Aberdeen scandal. I'm not a fan of the Sun or the DR but we as fans will read them because that's what we do. We rage at the nonsense they write and then we'll praise their articles when they happen to agree with our points of view!

We're all entitled to our opinions and mine is that Griff has now become a liability to the squad rather than an asset. I respect your opinion but I honestly think you're looking at this with your heart rather than your head. HH

Have to agree with you on that pictures or not he is talismanic for us and I believe that the club will give him this final season, the 10 season to show despite his personal problems he is a top quality player after that though , after the 10 he could be gone but to let him go now would be the worst thing the club could do as theres no doubting his talent and can we get better? If we offload griff and bayo I would say that would leave us in trouble up front

I'm just wondering how many 2nd chances Celtic will afford the Griff. Cracking good player but an expensive liability if he isn't on the pitch and forever giving the smsm more of the brown stuff to sling at us. There are so many dimensions to his character and I'm pretty sure he isn't that happy with himself either. The club has allowed him plenty of time to address his issues and seek professional help but his jaiket must be on a shoogly peg right now.

I dont read the sun or the daily rancid and wont be anytime soon it's not what I do. On the park is where Griffiths should be judged not his antics off it. I couldn't care less if he was banned from twitter, Twatter face and nosebook so long as he delivers on the field and last I checked he was doing just that. Klimala looks the part and ive no doubt he will replace griff or eddy at some point the bhoys a player no two ways about it HH
