Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths: Why this season’s title triumph is sweeter than last year’s

Celtic FC

Celtic have won the league title in Scotland four seasons in a row.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has explained on the club’s official Twitter page why this campaign’s Scottish Premiership triumph means more to him that last season’s success.

The Bhoys have won the league title for the fourth year in a row, asserting their dominance over Scottish football.

Griffiths has played an important role in Celtic’s success this season, especially in the second half of the campaign when he has been arguably the best striker at the club.

The 24-year-old Scotland international joined Celtic from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2014, and although he won the title last season, he is happier with his performances this term.

“It’ll be good for everyone to get to Celtic Park and show off the trophy again,” Griffiths is quoted as saying by Celtic’s official Twitter account.

“Last year the league was basically won by the time I joined but this year I’ve had more of an important role to play.”

In the end, Celtic won the Premiership title pretty comfortably, but they did struggle in the opening months of the season.

Aberdeen challenged Ronny Deila’s side, but the quality that Celtic have eventually made the difference.

Celtic’s final game of the season is against Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park on Sunday.
