Down the years he has seen off the arrival of umpteen strikers from Stefan Scepovic, Nadir Ciftci, Vakoun Bayo, Carlton Cole and Colin Kazim Richards.
In his mid-twenties Griffiths knew that his natural gifts would see him back in favour, he was far from a favourite of Ronny Deila but with 40 goals in season 2015/16 he saved the day.
Even when Brendan Rodgers had Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard available Griffiths was still regularly called on, rarely as first choice but a reliable deputy.
Over the last three seasons however Griffiths has fallen from favour, the bursts of form have become rarer and rarer, the patience of coaches and fans has been stretched.
Last season there was a brilliant cameo lasting two months before Lockdown but this season, a vital one for the striker has seen things almost entirely broken.
He won’t go short of offers but it’s unlikely that he’ll be indulged to the same extent as he has over the last few seasons.
April 30 is D-Day, if Celtic don’t take up the option in the striker’s contract he’ll be a free agent ready to negotiate a new deal elsewhere.
Leigh Griffiths has not been there for Celtic to count on throughout this season. He isn’t close to being fully fit in April. In August he turns 31 years old.
He’s scored 24 goals in the last 3 seasons.
It’s time for him to move on from Celtic and start a fresh challenge.

He is on 18k a week and has scored 24 goals in 3 years. He needs to leave. He is unprofessional. Let’s use the money elsewhere.

I do not agree, one player I think you can take a risk to keep given the issues with the squad as a whole, better than the other two choices as Eddy will leave.

If he can’t get fit during what was a vital season, why should we keep him on? Love LG but he’s let us down badly.

Because his diet consists of ready meals from M&S
