Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has been quoted by the Daily Record suggesting what he feels is the main difference between his performances now and last season.
Griffiths has shot to the top of the scoring charts for the Bhoys this season, taking his position as the club’s number one attacker in his position.
He’s suggested that the main difference is how precise and deadly he is being in front of goal compared to the 2013/2014 campaign.
“It just shows how hard I have worked to change the manager’s mind about me – I am reaping the rewards right now and so is he. Last season, I came in, scored a few goals and got a few assists. Now I am getting chances and putting them away,” he said.
Celtic are looking good for at least a double with their next league match at the end of this week, giving them another chance to move closer to wrapping up the title.
It would be a fitting reward for the efforts that Griffiths has put in this season and as soon as the league is taken care of, manager Ronny Deila can start making one or two changes.
Griffiths is one of the players who may be whipped out of the team quickly, because of the impact he’s had and how important he has become to the side.
He can be protected and will be vital during the early stages of next season in July and August when Celtic get their preparation for next year underway.
