Charlie Mulgrew has weighed in on speculation surrounding Leigh Griffiths as the Celtic striker is linked with a move back to boyhood club Hibs.

The 30-year-old has struggled for form at Celtic this season but his 124 goals since 2014 prove his lethal instincts. Griffiths shone at Hibs between 2011-2013, the club he grew up supporting. He could leave Parkhead for free this summer if the club don’t activate a contract extension clause.

Hibs manager Jack Ross would be open to a conversation about moving for the Celtic striker if he was available, but former Scotland international Mulgrew isn’t sure above a move (Sky Sports): “If they get someone in this year you might get something extra out of Leigh.

 

“He’s coming into the last year of his contract if Celtic take up the option. If a manager can get his arm around him and get him scoring, a fit Leigh Griffiths is worth his weight in gold. Get him fit, get him striking, get him confident. You know how big confidence is in football and get him scoring goals. I think it’s a no-brainer.”
