GRIFF ON THE LOOK-OUT

1

LEIGH GRIFFITHS, who has scored 123 goals for Celtic, has just over two weeks to find a club.

The 31-year-old former Scotland striker is about to be handed back to the Hoops with Dundee triggering a break clause in his loan deal.

Originally, Griffiths agreed a season-long temporary switch to the Dens Park outfit, but, following just two goals in 14 appearances, the faltering frontman is about to have his stay on Tayside cut short.

BRIEF ENCOUNTER…Leigh Griffiths in action against West Ham in July – possibly the last time he will be seen in a Celtic shirt at Parkhead.

However, the one-time fans’ favourite is NOT wanted at Parkhead and boss Ange Postecoglou said bluntly that the forward should “look for opportunities elsewhere”.

Griffiths is now in football limbo, as CQN warned last week, and, although discussions are still going on between the clubs, it appears inevitable the player, who was signed by Neil Lennon from Wolves for £1.1million in January 2014, will be cut loose.

Postecoglou, speaking to the Scottish Sun, added: “That dialogue hasn’t included me.

“Leigh’s situation is that he will probably be looking at opportunities elsewhere and that’s kind of where I see it, as well.”

Griffiths’ contract with the Hoops is due to expire on May 31.
