Pamela Doherty is the one of the latest to give their support for the Celtic striker.

Earlier this year, Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Leigh would be taking time away from football to deal with 'personal issues.

Leigh has received support from fans and across the footballing community.
Now, Pamela Doherty, mother of 15-year-old Paige who was brutally murdered in 2016, has sent her best to the Celtic man.

She said she wanted to show the same support as he did for her following her daughter's death.

Pamela shared a picture of Griffiths pouting with the hashtag 'pout for Paige' which he'd posted after the tragic death of the Clydebank teen.

The hashtag was used by those wanting to pay in tribute to Paige in the weeks and months following her death.

Alongside the picture Pamela wrote: "When Paige died, this man supported our pout for Paige campaign and now we all support him. Get well soon x"

When contacted by the Daily Record Pamela said: "Leigh deserves all the support he can get."

Paige was brutally stabbed by John Leathem at his Delicious Deli in Clydebank on March 19, 2016.

Leathem later pled guilty to muder and is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence

Earlier today, Neil Lennon, the former Celtic boss also gave his support to Griffiths.

The Hibs manager, who has admitted his own struggles with depression, said: "At the end of the day, he's a human being and he just needs support.

"We all have issues, unfortunately for Leigh, his are played out in-front of the public eye.

"I don't know what his problems are but he'll come through it."
