‘One More Chance’ ‘Let Us Down One Too Many Times’ Fans Debate Whether Celtic Ace Should Be Sold By Postecoglou

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has confirmed that he is hoping to be part of Ange Postecoglou’s first-team plans ahead of the new season.

The 29-year-old struggled with fitness issues last campaign, leading to some scathing criticism from former manager Neil Lennon, but the forward has said that the new head coach has contacted him to give assurances about his future, with a new contract likely to be agreed:

“I spoke to the manager last week and he is keen to keep me on. We are looking for a deal to be done and hopefully it can be done in the next few days.”

Supporters on Twitter are very much split on whether Griffiths deserves to be given another opportunity to salvage his Hoops career:

It is a difficult situation. Griffiths is an excellent striker when he is fit and firing, but there are no guarantees that he will be in the right mindset to perform to the best of his ability.

Postecoglou’s man-management skills will be put to the test, but if the Australian can keep Griffiths on the straight and narrow, it would certainly help Celtic’s chances of getting a good start to next season.
