LEIGH GRIFFITHS was brutally honest after his Hampden heroics on Sunday about what he needs to get back going and firing fully.
The striker has a long running issue with fitness and that’s why Neil Lennon hasn’t been using him. However, it’s a self fulfilling prophecy at this point, Neil Lennon isn’t playing the striker because he isn’t fit and Leigh can’t get fit until he starts getting games.
There are some players who are naturally match sharp, then there are others who need the game time to get there. We’ve seen it over the years with many top players.
Leigh went public with his request for more game time, taking confidence from coming on and scoring again for Celtic – helping them to a quadruple treble.

Edouard missed three golden opportunities at Hampden on Sunday, in open play, the striker looks like he’s lost his touch for the moment. His penalty was on another level but had he been the Eddy of old, we’d have been out of sight before Hearts could rally.
Nei has a big decision to make, he has three games before the Glasgow Derby and by then he needs to know who he can trust to deliver on the day.
