Last night Leigh Griffiths ‘Liked’ a Twitter comment suggesting either he or Bayo were likely to leave the club following the arrival of Patryk Klimala. What subsequently kicked off was sufficient for Leigh to delete his Twitter account. The original comment may be valid, and Leigh’s reaction was certainly ill advised, but he, more than anyone in the squad, deserves some slack from the support.
Leigh Griffiths has earned the right to do pretty much whatever he likes on social media, within normal taste guidelines. Since he arrived at Celtic six years ago, he has exceeded expectations, scored goals and been an important part of our story. His interaction with fans and kids outside the stadium and at events is generous and increasingly rare.
He is also 29-years-old and naturally fit. His story has a few chapters still to write.
