A number of Celtic fans have been commenting on Neil Lennon's update on Leigh Griffiths ahead of the Hoops' Scottish Cup clash this weekend.
The Celtic striker had a lengthy spell out earlier in the season due to injuries and personal problems and has not started a match for the Bhoys since the Europa League group clash away at Cluj on 12 December.
Griffiths made five subsequent substitute appearances last month (Transfermarkt), and with Patryk Klimala joining Celtic in the January window and Vakoun Bayo recovering from injury, it could mean the 29-year-old may slip further down the pecking order.
However, when asked about the possibility of any more new attackers on the horizon, Lennon is quoted by The Scotsman as saying: "We have Odsonne in, and Griff and Griff is looking good. He had a good Dubai trip and trained well again this week so maybe not.
"We will see how things go over the next few weeks. I can't comment on speculation surrounding any player really. There has been a lot in the last few months about Griff. But he is hungry and he wants to play and he has made that pretty clear to me."
The Celtic Twitter feed shared a cropped version of Lennon's quote, focusing specifically on Griffiths, and some fans had their say on the social media platform:
