Leigh Griffiths set to stay at Celtic

We’ll start with the good news; Callum McGregor is the new captain of the club.

We wish him very well in that role, and hopefully it’s a successful one for him.

Celtic, being Celtic, then undid that nice news by announcing Leigh Griffiths is now going to be staying at us, and is even in the squad for the game tomorrow.

Quite unbelievable and there’s clearly a face-saving exercise being done, rather than paying him off as it would involve a fair amount of money. It’s McKay’s first real big test as CEO, and it’s fair to say he’s handled it poorly. Hopefully there’s a U-Turn down the line from the club, but I won’t hold my breath.

Finally, the latest PREMIERSHIP YEARS podcasts from GIGPOD are now live!

Two more to go and we can then say; THERE’S THE PREMIERSHIP YEARS AWAY!
