Leigh Griffiths: New Falkirk signing determined to 'enjoy football again'

Former Hibs and Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths says he is focused on enjoying his football again after signing for League One Falkirk.

Griffiths had spent the first half of the season on loan with Dundee – where he scored three goals – and subsequently rejected the offer of a Dens Park contract with wages based on appearances.

The former Livingston, Hibs and Wolves striker will now be tasked with reviving Falkirk' s promotion hopes.

Martin Rennie's side are 21 points behind leaders Cove Rangers in sixth place but only two points off the play-off positions.

Griffiths, whose former Scotland team-mate Kenny Miller is Falkirk's assistant manager, told his new club's website: "I'm really happy to be here. Martin and Kenny made it clear that they thought I could help them with the club's promotion push.

"For me it's about getting back enjoying football again and helping the team push up the league."

The Scotland international scored 123 goals for Celtic in 261 appearances after joining the club in January 2014.

Rennie said: "I'm delighted that we've been able to bring Leigh to the club.

"He's a very talented player who has scored goals throughout his career, and I think the timing has worked out really well for both the club and the player to come in and get playing games, and I'm sure scoring goals."
