Tam McManus has backed Leigh Griffiths for a move from Celtic to Hibs where ‘he’s a god.’

The striker has been linked with a transfer back to his boyhood club where he spent two years between 2011 and 2013. He joined Celtic in 2014 and has scored 123 goals since, although only six have come this season.

Hibs manager Jack Ross didn’t rule out the possibility of moving for the Celtic man this week but it would only be if circumstances allowed it. Griffiths could be available for free this summer if the Hoops don’t activate a one-year extension clause.

Former Hibee McManus believes it’s a deal that could happen (PLZ): “Bring him home! I think it’s possible. I don’t think Leigh Griffiths will be at Celtic next season, he needs to go an rebuild his career somewhere. There’s no better place to go back home with the team he supports. He’s a god there with the Hibs supporters.

“To see Griffiths banging in goals at Easter Road next season is every Hibs fan’s dream so fingers crossed big Ron gets the cheque book out.”
