Left out: Celtic ace Leigh Griffiths is going through fitness issues

Neil Lennon has got everyone talking this week after leaving Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths out of his recent training squad in Loughborough University and subsequently this weekend's pre-season games in France due to fitness issues.

Griffiths splits opinion among football fans and I don't know him personally, but from the outside looking in he's had a tough time over the past couple of years away from the game.

When lockdown kicked in back in March, a lot of people would have been dreading the long days and extra time they had on their hands. Routine is something that makes people tick, knowing what's ahead rather than the unknown.
