Neil Lennon hints at Leigh Griffiths interest

Celtic manager Neil Lennon refuses to rule his side out of the running to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-forward Leigh Griffiths.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has suggested that he may make a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Leigh Griffith before the end of this month's transfer window.

The Scottish champions have been in the market for a new centre-forward ever since Gary Hooper departed in the summer for Premier League outfit Norwich City.

When asked about speculation that has linked his club with a move for Griffiths by the Daily Record, Lennon replied: "He is highly thought of, put it that way."

The 23-year-old scored 28 goals during a loan stint with Hibernian last season.
