Leigh Griffiths may only have been on target for Celtic in a meaningless pre-season friendly against weak opposition in Austria this week.

But it was a huge moment in his recovery from what has been a difficult period for him. For any striker, putting the ball in the net is a big confidence booster. It doesn’t matter that it was a tap in. Long may it continue.

Now we are talking about Leigh Griffiths the striker not Leigh Griffiths and all of the problems he has had. It is a positive step in the right direction for him.

He spoke very openly about the issues he has been dealing with after the game. Hopefully getting back playing and scoring will help him to get over them.

Sometimes when you are sitting around with time on your hands you can dwell on things too much. If he gets back playing again they could vanish.

It will be a big jump for him to play competitively now, but with a bit of luck he will go from strength to strength.
