Neil Lennon has praised Leigh Griffiths for getting himself into great condition.

The striker missed Celtic’s three match trip to France with his manager making unusually critical comments about the former Hibs striker.

From his attitude to his fitness and use of social media Lennon didn’t hold back after the 1-1 draw with Nice ten days ago.

Griffiths was left to train at Lennoxtown while his team-mates prepared for the new season but there was a noticeable about turn from the Celtic boss when asked about the striker after today’s 2-0 win over Ross County.
