Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths’ brother can’t wait for him to return to his playing career.

Aaron Griffiths posted on social media about the Hoops striker who is taking a sabbatical from the game.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the former top scorer to make a full recovery.

Aaron updates on Griffiths situation

This post by Aaron isn’t the only one that is getting fans talking about his famous brother.

Last week, he retweeted a fan post showing Leigh and Neil Lennon together with the tag ‘volumes’.

Lennon was the man who brought Griffiths to the club from Hibernian and his relationship with Brendan Rodgers hasn’t always been strong.

 

It appears fans are getting more information from family members rather than the club or media.

Nevertheless, updates are welcome to fans as they are eagerly waiting for Griffiths to get back amongst the goals.

Griffiths hasn’t played since the start of December in a 5-1 victory over Kilmarnock at Celtic Park.

After experiencing a period of mental health problems, the Scotland international took a break from football.

The post by Aaron hopefully indicates that the 28-year-old isn’t too far from recovery.

Griffiths return will be shot in the arm

When the forward does come back, it will be like having a new striker and in a position of need.

The Hoops only really have Odsonne Edouard as a recognised first team striker with Vakoun Bayo playing for the reserves and Oliver Burke is a natural winger.

Griffiths gives an extra element which Edouard doesn’t possess like greater pace and pressing defenders.

Plus, this will give opposition defenders something else to think about.

Furthermore, his set-piece abilities, especially from direct free-kicks, is sorely needed.

Whenever he does return, he will have a point to prove to himself and to any doubters.

He has never been one to back down from a challenge and this won’t be any different.

Haste ye back, Leigh!
