Tony Watt has sent a special message of support to Leigh Griffiths- and praised the handling of the strikers issues by Brendan Rodgers.

The Celtic careers of both men overlapped briefly with only those in the front line knowing the pressures and issues that leading sportsmen contend with.

Although the rewards of playing at Celtic are obviously high the pressure that comes with the job is equally intense.

Griffiths has outlasted a number of strikers since joining Celtic in January 2014 and scored his landmark 100th goal for the club earlier this season.

Over the last 18 months his appearances have become less frequent although he has still made a big contribution to Celtic’s haul of seven successive trophy wins.

His starting role at Motherwell last week was his first since October 7, as he takes time out from playing there is no indication as to when he will return to training or be involved in first team action again.
