Celtic was taken aback by the news that Leigh Griffiths has been given a new 12 month contract.

Every single sign had pointed to the striker leaving the club but in football anything is possible as this deal has shown.

Griffiths never managed to lay a full 90 minutes last season, hasn’t been spotted at training at Lennoxtown but has now picked up a new contract with the approval of Ange Postecoglou.

Whether the decision was taken based on Griffiths being in good shape or the lack of alternatives remains to be seen.

The former Wolves striker appears to have been in the Last Chance Saloon quite a few times but incredibly has bounced back for another chance at the club he joined in 2014.

Nadir Cifti, and Patryk Klimala are just some of the strikers that have come and gone since Griffiths made his Celtic debut- with a Champions League qualifier coming up and a trip to Tynecastle on the opening day of the SPFL season his next Celtic goals will be warmly welcomed.
