Leigh Griffiths continued his impressive form for Celtic against Motherwell, taking his tally to three goals and one assist in his last five games.
He got the second goal of the team’s 4-0 victory over the team occupying third-place, after Callum McGregor made an impressive run, before picking out the striker, who got the ball out of his feet and placed it past Mark Gillespie.
This goal has got plenty of fans talking positively about the 29-year-old.

One fan declared that “he’s back” after he endured a spell of nine games without providing a single goal or assist, while another has used his success as an excuse to take a dig at Alfredo Morelos.
There was also talk of the impressive partnership that he is striking up with Odsonne Edouard, which was evident to see against Motherwell, with the Frenchman notching two of the team’s other three goals.
The hope now is that he will be able to continue this form, as one fan exclaimed that there is “nothing better than Griff scoring goals”.

Fans have also taken this as an opportunity to shut down anyone who had claimed that Griffiths was finished.
However, this is someone who has represented Celtic 227 times, scoring 111 goals and providing 47 assists, so there is definitely faith that he can keep going, especially after his latest goal.
Brilliant player shocking that a lot of the support were slaughtering him after a few sub appearances
