Celtic released Leigh Griffiths in January after Dundee sent him back to Parkhead early. He had a disappointing first half of the season, but was keen to redeem himself.
For the latter part of the season, the once Scotland internationalist dropped down to League 1, penning a six-month contract with Falkirk. He failed to impress and his contract wasn’t renewed.
Since, he’s struggled to find himself a club. As the season start is looming, the striker still finds himself searching for a club.
Most recently, Forfar in League 2 had considered signing the player, who was handed a year extension at Celtic last summer but decided against the move.
As quoted by The Sun, the Forfar manager admitted he was keen to bring Griffiths to the club but decided to pursue other targets.
“We gave it a thought but that was a good few weeks down the line.
“Since then, I’ve moved on and got my attacking options in now.
“That won’t be happening.
“Sparky is a good friend of myself and Jeebs.
“He is a top player, just a couple of years ago he was still one of the main strikers in Scotland.
“If Leigh gets himself back to fitness he is probably above our level, if I’m honest.”
Could This Be The End For Leigh?
With no clubs in Scotland interested in signing Leigh Griffiths, will he call it a day?
He’s got a reputation in Scotland; if he wants to continue his career in football, he may need to look overseas, but with a young family, is he prepared to?
