Hibs have been linked with an emotional move for Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths as rumours swirl over the Scotland international’s future (Daily Record).

The forward has scored six goals this season in what has been a disappointing campaign overall at Celtic. But his record with the Parkhead side stands at 123 goals in 259 appearances since 2014.

Griffiths had a memorable spell with Hibs following a move to Wolves in 2011, scoring 39 times over 78 appearances for the Easter Road club. Jack Ross’ side are now being linked with a move for the boyhood Hibee and Celtic forward.

Aberdeen were predominantly linked with his services but it has been reported that Griffiths is not a Dons transfer target. That opens the door for Hibs, with reports stating ‘it is likely’ to be the Easter Road club that the forward would move to. The 30-year-old could be available on a free transfer if Celtic don’t activate a contract extension clause.
