CHRIS SUTTON believes Leigh Griffiths may have unintentionally created a rift in the Celtic dressing room because of the frontman’s on-field antics.
The striker came off the bench against Rosenborg to grab the winner for Celtic late on and declared he was ‘number one’. A celebration Leigh said came out of frustration as he scores goals but is regularly overlooked.
However, former Celtic striker Chris Sutton believes this will be irking fellow striker Odsonne Edouard with the public display of putting himself over and inadvertently putting the French striker down.
Speaking to the Daily Record the BT Pundit said: “Griffiths is a terrific striker but I don’t like this ‘I’m the man’ stuff. He did it again at Killie.
“That doesn’t create harmony. If I’m Edouard, I don’t like that.”
If you’re a manager, you want to see that passion from your players to go out and make themselves the most important player on the pitch.
However, when things aren’t going so well, it will get used against players, and that’s precisely what’s happening here.
Had Celtic won the game 1-0 on Sunday – Chris Sutton wouldn’t be calling Leigh’s choice of celebration into question but rather applaud him for taking the initiative.
Celtic lose, and it’s somehow the reason why Edouard and others may be disgruntled.
In the words of Chris himself – ‘Do Me A Favour’.
