Leigh Griffiths might not be waiting too much longer for his Celtic return

Leigh Griffiths has dropped a heavy hint that he will soon return for Celtic after the Scotland striker took a break from football to deal with off-field issues.

The 28-year-old has been out for a month after the Scottish Premiership champions granted him time off to seek professional help, but he dropped a message on social media that he is closing in on a comeback.

Griffiths retweeted a supportive message from a Celtic fan which featured a video of him lifting silverware and scoring goals for club and country, and wrote: "Not long before I'm back doing all this!"

He announced on Sunday that he was off work "due to my mental health state" and "not gambling, not drugs, or any other issue that has been written about me since December".

Griffiths spoke out after photographs of him attending a racecourse meeting appeared on social media and on newspaper front pages.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers later reminded Griffiths to take responsibility for dealing with his issues.

Rodgers told several newspapers earlier this week: "It's very important that he understands why he is off and why he has been given the time off. Why he has to maximise that time in terms of getting better.

"That's about getting specialist help and lying low and focusing on the simple things in your life that will allow you to be better."
