Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths sends message to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Danny Batth

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is a former teammate of Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Danny Batth.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has taken to social networking site Twitter to wish Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Danny Batth a speedy recovery.

Batth will miss the rest of the season after a scan revealed a stress fracture in his foot, according to BBC Sport.

The 24-year-old centre-back could be sidelined with the problem for up to three months, meaning that he will not be available to feature for Wolves in the Championship playoffs if the Wanderers are able to make it.

It must be a huge disappointment to Batth, and his former Wolves teammate Griffiths hopes that the Englishman recovers well.

Following the news of Batth’s injury, Scotland international striker Griffiths took to Twitter to send him the following message:

Wolves are currently eighth in the Championship table with 72 points from 44 matches, just three points behind sixth-placed Ipswich Town.

Kenny Jackett’s side, who got promoted from League One at the end of last season, will take on Wigan Athletic away from home at the DW Stadium on Saturday.
