Many Celtic fans have been talking about the comments that Neil Lennon recently made about striker Leigh Griffiths.

Lennon was recently vocal about Griffiths’ fitness issues after the striker was left behind at Lennoxtown when the Celtic squad flew to France for their pre-season friendlies. Lennon recently publicly criticised Griffiths, saying that he’s not ‘happy’ with the Scotsman and it would have been ‘pointless’ to bring him with the rest of the team.

Starting with an easy one- apart from Paris Saint-Germain, which other French club did Edouard play for?

Lennon said that Griffiths needs to stop his social media ‘nonsense’ and that he needs to ‘get his head down’ and get his fitness back on track.

The Twitter account of the Grand Auld Podcast posted images of Lennon’s remarks and this caught the attention of many Celtic fans. Many of them had criticism for Griffiths.

Is Leigh Griffiths done at Celtic?

Yes, he's done

No, he's here to stay

Scott Brown has also talked about Griffiths recently. The midfielder said that while the other players have worked hard on their fitness, Griffiths needs to make sure he does that as well.

Lennon’s comments though left some other Celtic fans criticising the striker.

Like Lennon, many fans aren’t happy with Griffiths and some of them believe that they’ve seen the last of the striker in a Hoops jersey.

The 29-year-old had contributed to 15 goals in 31 games in all competitions for the Hoops in the 2019/20 season. He managed to score seven league goals in 2020 and this included a hat-trick against St. Mirren (as per Transfermarkt).

This shows that Griffiths can still be a vital player on his day. Celtic fans should hope that he gets his fitness back on track soon.
