    Someone on our board felt giving him a new deal was the right thing to do

    Griffiths couldn't motivate himself to keep fit and to give himself a chance to get into the Scotland squad for the Euros. He's a waster

    Each and every one of us would bite your hand off to get an opportunity to play for the Hoops. Some players just don't appreciate how lucky they have been to become a professional football player. Total waste

    Last season was a disgrace with regards to Griffiths. He finished the 9IAR season putting in his Best performances and getting the most consecutive starts since the season he had in 2015-16. Unfortunately however, he couldn’t carry it onto the next season after the lockdown, it seems that over that 3/4 month period his attitude and standards fell off a cliff. As much as Lennon was to blame, as well as other stroppy wantaway arseholes for last year, Griffiths with his unadulterated lack of discipline and simple professionalism played ad big a role in our complete capitulation last year. He’s a waster and I can guarantee if any if us here had both the talent AND opportunity he has had, we wouldn’t * it up the wall like Griff has.

    I wonder if this season has taught him anything, he can't get a start for Dundee. Next season I imagine some * will take a 1 year punt at him but it will be far lower than what he has earned in recent years.

    I imagine a Scottish Championship side, that may only be a 6 month contract though.

    He’s just a fat *!

    Will see him in the papers hanging about the boozers in Edinburgh in a couple of years with the local bams getting into bother, * his money down the drain.

    To think what I would do for the opportunity to play for Celtic or even have a career in professional football earning money I can only dream of.

    Give it 3 years and he'll have less money than you as he declares himself bankrupt. Total waste. He'll bump around from one bad story to another. He'll end up in the state that gazza is in.

    To * with lazy *, the last thing we need hanging around when we are on an upward curve.
    Has not got what it takes to be a modern day pro footballer.
    Gazza will be his roommate soon.

    He's a good footballer that happens to be a *. simple as that.
    He knows he's getting a wage untill he retires, so he dosnt give a *.

    He’s hardly pulling up trees at Dundee, he’s done.

    Lockdown finished him. His lack of professionalism is to blame though, no doubt he hasn't taken care of himself since he turned pro. He's extremely fortunate to have lasted at Celtic this long. Been * and unavailable for years now.

    How old is he now? 30? That's no age. The guy is a mess and people on here really had the cheek to say he was better than Edouard up until he left

    Kyogo out, Ajeti out, Giakoumakis out.
    8 games to go before the winter break one a cup final, one against sevco.
    Do we go all 8 without a striker or do we recall Griffiths and see if he can save his career in 8 games.
    Don't think we have a choice but to recall him now.
