Some Celtic fans on Twitter are more than happy to take £7 million for striker Leigh Griffiths.

The Daily Mail reported this weekend that Swansea City and MLS side Sporting Kansas City are interested in signing the Scottish hitman this month.

The 27-year-old marksman has played second fiddle to Moussa Dembele in Glasgow over the past 18 months or so, and even Odsonne Edouard was playing ahead of him under Brendan Rodgers at times during December.

Nevertheless, Griffiths is a brilliant goalscorer and his 40-goal haul from the 2015-16 campaign has made him a popular figure on the green half Glasgow.

But some Hoops supporters are willing to let him go if that £7 million fee is accurate.

Griffiths remains a very divisive figure among Celtic fans but surely what both sets can agree on is the fact that the former Hibs striker, on his day, is unplayable.

If Celtic losing Dembele - who is linked with a Premier League move - then Griffiths's importance to the team grows in a big way.
