“See Jermain Defoe” – Sky Sports savant urges Celtic star to copy Rangers man

“A fit Griffiths would be inestimable for Celtic heading towards the business end of the period. At the present time Celts are a prisoner of Odsonne Edouard’s wellness. Damage to the youthful Frenchman will leave Lennon genuinely short direct,” the Sky Sports savant disclosed to The Scottish Sun.

“In the event that he looks over the city he’ll see Jermain Defoe as yet playing at 37. That doesn’t occur unintentionally, just by submissive devotion to the activity. Does Griffiths have that in him? He has just composed his part in Celtic history. Anybody getting to 50 objectives in less games than Henrik Larsson has accomplished something exceptional.

“Yet, he can either make a shameful exit from the club or refute his skeptics once more. Given what he’s come through, getting up to match wellness ought to be a breeze for him in the event that despite everything he has the craving. With this current season’s title race turning out to be a nerve shredder, he couldn’t request a superior motivator.”

Defoe at present tops the Scottish Premiership objective diagrams with 10 strikes in 12 appearances, and is assuming an immense job in Rangers’ title offer.

Griffiths unquestionably can take in some things from the Light Blues man, and it will enthusiasm to check whether the Celtic star can bob back and come back to top structure after those unpleasant couple of months.
