‘He never misses…’ Celtic’s Jeremie Frimpong hails return of Leigh Griffiths

The fact that Partick Thistle are struggling at the foot of the Championship demands caution over seeing Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths’ first goal and domestic start in five months as the kickstarter for a career that has stalled following personal and injury issues.
