LEIGH GRIFFITHS was heading for the crossroads in his career this time last year.

Dundee were about to trigger a return clause in their original season-long loan contract for the player who scored 123 goals for Celtic.

Former Scotland international Griffiths had just over two weeks to go of an association with the Parkhead club before they scrapped his deal with six months still to run.

Now 32, the once-prolific hitman is a free agent after stints at Falkirk and in Australia and has been offered a gateway back into the game by Irish second tier side Waterford, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

The ambitious club are owned by Fleetwood Town supremo Andy Pilley, who appointed Griffith’s former Hoops captain Scott Brown as manager in the summer. They are desperate to return to the top flight after being relegated last season and see the fallen idol as a marquee signing for the new season, which begins next month.

Morton, who face Celtic in the Scottish Cup opener at Parkhead on January 21, are also showing an interest in the player who is currently training with his first club Livingston in an effort to get himself fit for a call-up.
