CRAIG GORDON is convinced Leigh Griffiths will take the freeway to success at Celtic in the forthcoming season.
The striker, with 59 clubs goals over the past two campaigns, made the international breakthrough with his two magnificent free-kicks against England in the 2-2 World Cup draw at Hampden eight days ago.
His international team-mate Gordon watched the Hoops hitman hit two quickfire deadball efforts before Gareth Southgate’s men snatched a point with a stoppage-time leveller from Harry Kane.
The keeper said: “Leigh will have enjoyed those goals, no matter what.
“I know how gutted he was after the game and he was the same as everyone else in that he would have loved being part of a win.
“But, at the same time, Leigh is a goalscorer and those goals will mean a lot to him.
“No-one can take that away from him. I wasn’t surprised because I have seen him do it so regularly in games and at training at Lennoxtown.
“However, I suspect it was sweet for him to get off the mark for Scotland that way.
“Hopefully, when the dust settles he, too can, take a lot from the game although he is always a confident lad, anyway.

“People can say what they like about Joe Hart, but he is a top goalkeeper. He has played at the highest level and for Griff to go and ping two into different corners like that took some doing.

“He won’t be shy in reminding us, I’m sure!”
