The striker has been excellent during his time at the club but last year we saw a side of him that shows that we are only human.
It appears as though he has got past his demons, though, and has been put through his paces in training with Kennedy revealing he has come through it well and has clearly looked pretty sharp.
The Hoops play FC Pinkafeld in their first non-competitive fixture of the campaign next week and it would certainly be nice to see Griff play and hopefully get on the score-sheet.
“Leigh has trained the last three days.
“We did a medical screen and a football session on Monday, a double session yesterday and a single session this morning.
“He’s trained every minute of every session so that’s a very positive start for Leigh.
“He’s had a tough time in the last six months or so, so this is an important time.”
A promising bit of news for the new season, then, as though he perhaps isn’t the forward he was, he is certainly one that can still have more than a positive impact throughout the campaign.
Let’s hope he has put his troubles behind him, then.
