Ange Postecoglou confirmed he would be meeting with Griffiths to decide whether he will be offering the striker a new contract, it seems that he has not.
We are still waiting for an official announcement from the club but it is not a hard puzzle to solve.
Over the past few weeks, Griff has been posting videos of him and his personal trainer doing some fitness drills. In all of these uploads to his Instagram story, he was in Celtic training gear, in today’s upload he was in the Scottish National Team kit.
In Celtic’s social media post of players returned for preseason training Leigh Griffiths did not appear to be present.
Leigh no longer references Celtic in any of his social media accounts he changed his Instagram profile picture in the last week or so.
The departure of Leigh Griffiths will always split opinion but it is for the best. Leigh was a fantastic goalscorer in Deila’s final season, but since he has shown he can not be relied upon. If Leigh has been released it will free up £15,000 a week [salarysport].
If Postecoglou has taken the decision not to renew Griffiths’ contract I wish him all the best for the future.
