Leigh Griffiths has had a tumultuous time at Celtic over the past couple of years. He has dealt with issues off the field, ones that kept him out of the second half of the 18/19 season.
He was also a bit part player for the first half of last season, only to play a major role in Celtic's successes with his goals in the second half of the campaign. However, he turned up for pre-season severely out of shape.
That didn't go down well with Neil Lennon, who left the striker out of the travelling party for a trip to France. Having returned to fitness, he is now in hot water again.
Griffiths hosted a birthday party for his girlfriend, with images appearing on social media showing that Scotland's social distancing guidelines had clearly been broken. This came just after eight Aberdeen player broke social distancing rules by visiting a bar in the city last Saturday.
Celtic released a statement this afternoon to say that Griffiths and others at the club had been 'reminded of their responsibilities'
However, many Celtic supporters feel this latest incident is the final straw for the player at the club.

Is Leigh Griffiths the only footballer in the world who has broken rules? No.
Is Leigh Griffiths the only footballer in the world who is thick enough to get caught every single time he has broken a rule? Yes. 😂

Defended Leigh Griffiths before but that’s it for me, he’s done. Completely blown it. Has so much more to give for Celtic and Scotland but spoils it on himself. He’s had too many chances and now it’s probably for the best if we cut our losses and we sell him.

@CelticFC As a club like no other, if you respect your fans, the community, NHS, all the front line services and to all who have passed and the families they leave behind. Then lead by example and show Leigh Griffiths the door - he has no place to represent Celtic FC.

What are we going to do with Leigh Griffiths. Celtic have supported him time and time again and he just keeps letting us down🙄

Griffiths is ruled out of today's game against Kilmarnock with a calf strain.
