Griffiths on his way back

Leigh Griffiths is on the comeback trail.

The striker missed the whole of February after suffering a calf injury shortly after scoring against Hibs on January 27.

Griffiths went to see a specialist this week to assess the injury which has hampered his progress over the last 15 months.

After the winter break in Dubai Griffiths scored the winning goals against Partick Thistle and Hibs before his calf injury recurred.

December and January turned out to be costly months in terms of injuries but slowly Brendan Rodgers is getting players back towards full fitness.

Tom Rogic has played in the last three matches while Patrick Roberts and Marvin Compper are in contention for the Scottish Cup tie against Morton.

The return of Griffiths would be a massive boost for the Celtic manager giving him options in attack with the former Hibs striker chasing his 100th goal as a Celtic player.
