    Hypocrisy mate!! No other word for it, especially after the way he banged on about Ronny (remember thinking it was never going to stop). He's quick to dish it out is Sutton but he needs to have a look at himself here!!

    ps- and he's wrong about Griff, i think he knows it but he's not the kinda guy to admit he got it wrong!! Reminds me of somebody!!

    sutton was talking absolute nonsense tonight. Griffiths looks as fit as all the rest of the players so dunno what more he can do, he should be our number 1 striker now.

    Sutton was using Griffiths’ lack of fitness as a reason not to criticise Lennon.

    I’ve never been Griffiths’ biggest fan but he should absolutely be starting right now. He’s scoring and actually looks like he wants to win. Same can’t be said for Edouard.

    What was Sutton talking about? At least Griffiths chased around and harried people- more than Edouard did all game. Looks fit enough to me. Griffiths and ajeti at one point were doing the pressing all by themselves, Griffiths turned round in disbelief that nobody else was helping the press. He is far from the problem here.

    Cant play and cant get 90 mins fit when your manager refuses to use you and would use eddy regardless because eddy is the golden child. Sutton doing everything he can to not blame lennon,we all know it and sutton is not stupid he knows the problems at celtic but he is talking * to try and save his mate.

    Too much speculation with Griffiths and his fitness/attitude.
    The boy looks like he has more drive and desire when he's on the park than any other player.

    It’s quite clear that he doesn’t think Griffiths can play the lone striker role, which I can see a degree of logic in.

    Still must be infuriating for Griffiths when Edouard is getting on ahead of him today though.

    Comes on again and scores midweek and showed fight. Then gets dropped the following game and no time on the pitch at all. Would've at least had him on before Edouard

    Lennon doesn't seem to like being proved wrong or he likes having the upper hand. I think Griff has done his penance and should be allowed a chance.

    I cant help but think theres more at play behind the scenes than just his fitness.

    Personally think Lennon doesnt like griffiths as a guy. And that's why he isnt playing, and a fair distance of the idea that he ain't "match fit"?

    Because he certainly isnt on the bench because of recent performances.

    Another example of stubbornness from lennon

    I have been saying it for a while all this talk about him being so unfit pre season I find it hard to beleive as he didn’t look unfit against hibs

    Lennon mentioned players let him down and going to get him the sack yet plays them makes no sense to me , Christie , ntcham , eduoard all has bad games for a while now but guaranteed to start

    it’s ironic that the only reason Lennon is still Celtic manager is most likely due to Griffiths getting us the victory at st Johnstone and making a impact against Aberdeen . In his interviews as well he always seems to praise the team and manager .

    if it’s off field issues he shouldn’t be near the team but the same could be said about Lennon as there is plenty of rumours going about his off field issues

    I am a huge fan of Griffiths. I have no access to what happens in his personal life or training, but I really fail to see this indolent, reckless, irresponsible, selfish person many talk about or imply in the pitch. He was never disrespectful to team mates or manager in public. Also as someone who had my problems with depression, I not just empathize with the guy but I know in my own skin how dedicated and brave you have to be to keep the fitness of a professional athlete despite that. It is the first thing that suffers when your sleeping, eating etc goes to *.
