🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland international Leigh Griffiths on why he almost left Celtic

​Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has admitted that he did have a moment where he considered leaving the Scottish Premiership champions.

Griffiths is now back in the team and scoring goals but he said leaving the club crossed his mind because he was out of action for most of the 2018/19 season but now he is doing well for the club. 

Griffiths told The Daily Record: “There was a part of me that thought, ‘right, is it worthwhile me just moving completely, to get away and try to get a fresh start?’.

“And then the flip side was ‘Nah, I’ve got a lot of people to prove wrong here’. I’m still far from finished and I will show people that I will come back from this and pick up from where I left off.”

Griffiths joined Celtic in January 2014 from English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a transfer fee of £1 million as reported by the Daily Mail.

According to WhoScored statistics, the Scotland international has scored five goals, made six starts and 10 substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The 29-year-old has scored 111 goals from 236 appearances across all competitions for since joining the Hoops as cited by the club's official website.

Celtic will meet Clyde on Sunday, February 9 in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.
