Griffiths – who signed a new one-year contract at Parkhead last summer – was released by Celtic after making 261 appearances in eight years at Celtic, scoring 123 goals.

However, after confirming his departure from the club, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said Sky Sports News“He had an outstanding football career at Celtic.

“All of us are kind of visiting clubs, but you want to leave a mark there when you do.
