Griffiths comments get pelters - and rightly so

It was a relatively nonsense-free weekend from the club, until Sunday morning when Leigh Griffiths decided to back up Lennon and Lawwell to his pals in the paper.

That went down well!

Here’s the article first.

Very ‘well timed’ comments from a man whose unprofessionalism kicked off this nightmare season back in the summer.

The fans had a go at him yesterday, some went OTT, but largely the sentiment was fair game.

And of course, us at GIGPOD were snide as well!

Of course, Griffiths is always going to stand by a manager who has given him umpteen chances since his return to the club and CEO who really ought to have tore up his contract years ago, so this is self survival, but it’s not going to wash with fans when we’re 23 points behind Rangers, and could be worse off after Wednesday, though that’s a colossally big if, as I do not believe that even this Celtic side are capable of slipping up against Hamilton Accies at home, as bad as things are.

Elsewhere, Rafa Benitez won’t be our new manager, despite weird talk of him accepting a deal with us at the weekend, when many people bizarrely believed a fake letter concocted by a Rangers fan.
