Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths could be available to two Scottish Premiership clubs for free this summer – one of which is former clubs Hibs (Scottish Sun).

The Scotland international has been a key player for Celtic during their spell of domestic dominance but is now awaiting contract news as this era ends and a new one begins. Former club Hibs could take advantage of this.

It’s reported that Griffiths is waiting on a one-year option in his Celtic contract that would see him stay with the club until 2022. It’s a lucrative option for Griffiths but this expires at the end of this month on April 30.

Should Celtic not take up this option, the striker could leave Parkhead for free at the end of the season. That would attract ‘keen’ interest from Aberdeen, where current teammate Scott Brown is heading to become player-coach, while Hibs may also keep an eye.

It’s said that the Easter Road club could be interested in an emotional return to bring Griffiths back to the team he supported as a boy. Griffiths has scored 122 goals in 257 Celtic games but six goals in 21 appearances have arrived this season.
