‘I’M A BETTER PLAYER THANKS TO BRENDAN,’ ADMITS GRIFFITHS

1

LEIGH GRIFFITHS has accredited Brendan Rodgers for improving his fitness and making him a better player. 

The striker, who is currently on international duty with Scotland, said that recapturing his spot at Celtic and cementing his place with Scotland is down to the day-to-day work at Lennoxtown. 

“It’s down to hard work. There were a lot of times last season where I felt down on myself by not playing and Moussa being there and I was injured. It was frustrating. 

“I was working hard behind the scenes, every day on my rehab to keep myself fit. I’m working every day with the manager at Celtic and it’s paying off.

“But I was working hard behind the scenes, every day on my rehab to keep myself fit. I’m working every day with the manager at Celtic and it’s paying off.”

Griffiths, 27, has had some injury scares already this season with a niggling calf injury seeing him net 7 times in 14 outings; however, Griffiths believes that those injuries are behind him. 

“I’m lasting 90 minutes now when before I’d only get 60. Hopefully that’s my calf injury problems behind me. I’m still wary of it but I just want to get back through it and help the team as much as I can. That comes with age..”

Griffiths also attributed Rodgers’ influence on making him more of a team player and seeing things from a different perspective. 

“Before it was about trying to score myself. I look at the bigger picture now. It’s not just about yourself, you need to help the team.

” If I can make up play and have a helping hand in getting the team goals then that’s what it’s all about. We need to push in the one direction.”
