Celtic supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a post revealed Leigh Griffiths could be set to move to Aberdeen on a free this summer. 

The international has enjoyed seven successful years with the Hoops, scoring 122 goals in 257 appearances for the Glasgow giants as well as picking up seven Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and four Scottish League Cups.

However, injury, a drop in form and off-field issues have restricted the 30-year-old to just 23 top-flight starts over the last two and a half seasons. According to The Scottish Sun, the striker is now set for a nervous wait to discover if Celtic will exercise a one-year extension clause in his contract.

Griffiths will be free to leave Parkhead over the summer if the hierarchy decides not to take up that option, which has led to speculation that current teammate Scott Brown could be interested in taking him to Pittodrie when he joins the Dons in a player-assistant manager role next season.

Despite the former Wolves man playing a pivotal part in Celtic’s recent success, it seems a large section of their supporters have grown tired of his underwhelming displays of late and would be happy to see him go.

The report also claims Hibernian could be attracted to the Celtic forward after enjoying a previous spell with the Edinburgh outfit.
