Popular bookmakers SkyBET have released odds regarding the future of Hoops striker Leigh Griffiths, surprisingly installing the Reds as 8/1 outsiders to win the race for his signature.

The 26-year-old highlighted his quality on the world stage on Saturday, when he scored two outstanding free-kicks for Scotland against England.

He moved to Parkhead from Wolves in January 2014, and his goalscoring record during his time in Glasgow can be described as nothing other than impressive.

He has scored 85 goals in 143 outings for Celtic, but since the arrival of Moussa Dembele last summer, he has found his first-team opportunities slightly more limited.

Rumours have already began regarding Griffiths' future with Brendan Rodgers' side, with the Mirror claiming that Newcastle and West Brom are both keen on signing the striker.

SkyBET believe that his next destination could be the Hawthorns, and make the Baggies 7/2 favourites to sign the Celtic man, although they list Liverpool as shock 8/1 outsiders.

Jürgen Klopp is believed to be on the look-out for another forward, but whether Griffiths is what the German needs to help take the Merseysiders forward is debatable.

A move to the Black Country to link up with Tony Pulis seems the more likely scenario, but football is a funny old game, and a move to Anfield cannot be entirely ruled out.
