LEIGH GRIFFITHS looks like he could play some part in Celtic’s first friendly next week against FC Pinkafeld after coming through three days of intense training.
John Kennedy told CelticTV the player has not missed a minute of the pre-season training so far with the striker coming along well after so long out of action.
Leigh has not been in the squad since December when Brendan Rodgers revealed he would be out for a period of time to sort his personal life out and get his head back to a place where he could play football.
When Neil Lennon came back, there was hope we could have seen Leigh before the end of the season, but it never happened. The new Celtic boss has been readying the frontman for his return this pre-season and if he can get up to speed in bhoys mini-tour of Austria and Switzerland, then he could be a starter for Celtic against Sarajevo.
