CRAIG GORDON reckons on-fire Leigh Griffiths can be compared to his ex-Sunderland team-mate Darren Bent, who totalled over £60 MILLION in transfer fees.
“I would say they are similar in terms of finishing ability. Leigh actually plays a similar type of game, always looking to get in behind.
“Leigh maybe comes short and can score from longer range more than Darren Bent did, but in terms of goalscorers they’re both phenomenal.
“Once the ball drops into the box, if they’re on the end of it then they’re hitting the target. Bent cost a few quid right enough, so I don’t want to bum Leigh up too much!
“Seriously, Leigh is phenomenal in front of goal and will probably be annoyed he didn’t get more on Saturday.
“He’s always waiting for that chance and playing on the shoulder. He’s always looking to get through the middle and hit teams where it hurts.
“If he gets a chance you can pretty much rely on him hitting the target and more often than not it’s the back of the net.”
