Celtic 27-year-old must be handed chance to prove he is back to best v Dundee


Celtic attacker Leigh Griffiths has just returned from two months out injured, making an appearance as a second-half sub against Ross County.

With the Hoops in action against Dundee on Wednesday, the 27-year-old will be desperate to prove that he is back to his best now that he is fully fit once again, and as a result he should start against the Dens Park side.

Griffiths was in fine form against before he was injured, scoring the winning goals against both Partick Thistle and Hibernian before he was the victim of a severe calf injury.

In the time that Griffiths has been out, both Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard have staked their claim to be named the first choice striker at the club, and Griffiths more than deserves the chance to do the same.

With the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers on the horizon, Griffiths will feel that he deserves the chance to start that game, as already this season he has scored against the Ibrox club, and he has had success against them in the past.

The Hoops boss may well decide to go with two players up-front against Dundee, if that is the case the partnership between Dembele and Griffiths could be well worth persevering with, or if it is to be a lone striker Griffiths more than deserves that role.
