IT’S great to see Leigh Griffiths back in and around Lennoxtown training with Celtic again, first and foremost for the boy himself.

He has had his time out to deal with his issues, the club have supported him brilliantly, and hopefully that is all behind him now.

There is no rush for him to come back into first-team action you don’t feel, not with Odsonne Edouard, Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah all around the squad, but if you can get a fit Leigh Griffiths with his mind right into the reckoning too, then he would be an asset for anyone.

He’s been a successful striker for Celtic, and hopefully we can see him pull on the jersey again before the end of the season.

Scotland manager Alex McLeish’s need for him is probably even greater than Celtic’s, so let’s hope he’s back firing again for club and country soon.

It is also good to see Ryan Christie back in action after a spell out through injury. He showed his worth in the cameo at St Mirren last week.
