Leigh Griffiths: Stefan Scepovic should have done better this season

Leigh Griffiths speaks highly of Celtic teammate Stefan Scepovic, but believes that the Serbia international striker should have done better.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has told The Scottish Sun that his teammate Stefan Scepovic should have done better than he did in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

Scepovic joined Scottish Premiership giants Celtic from Spanish club Sporting Gijon in the summer of 2014.

The 25-year-old striker signed a four-year contract and cost £2.3 million in transfer fee, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.

The Serbia international arrived in Scotland with a strong reputation, having scored 22 goals in the Spanish second tier in the 2013-14 campaign.

The former Partizan star, though, failed to take the Scottish Premiership by storm and did not have a great season on a personal level.

Scepovic could score just four goals in 18 league appearances for champions Celtic.

Scotland international striker Griffiths, though, rates his teammate highly and has highlighted his qualities.

"He has all different kinds of qualities,” the former Wolverhampton Wanderers star told The Scottish Sun.

“He’s good at holding the ball, linking play, he can finish as well. I think maybe he should have done a little bit more than he did this season.”

Celtic won the Scottish Premiership title as well as the Scottish League Cup in Norwegian manager Ronny Deila’s first season at Celtic Park.
