Leigh Griffiths has fired back at the obsessed who attack his every move on social media.

The striker is currently taking time out from football to deal with personal issues but returned to twitter yesterday with a new year vow to return to the football pitch.

That brought out the lowlifes who feed off rumours and rumours about rumours while standing back as their tribute act follows the same errors as the club that went into liquidation in 2012.

Earlier this season Griffiths scored his 100th goal for Celtic but over the last 18 months he has been beset by muscle injuries that have reduced his effectiveness.

Brendan Rodgers has brought in high profile strikers in Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard but also gave Griffiths a contract extension in November.

He seemed to be on his way back when he scored as a substitute against Hamilton Accies and admitted that he had been through some dark times however on the eve of Celtic’s Europa League tie against RB Salzburg Rodgers announced that the former Hibs striker would be taking an indefinite break from football.
