Apparently Dembele picked up a hamstring injury against Dundee. Get the impression Rodgers would start him ahead of Griffiths even if he got both legs amputated though
I wouldnt blame him. For all the talk of players being improved this season we have a 40 goal striker sitting on the bench. I'm more than happy to play Dembele in the big games but Griffiths has been criminally wasted this year.
I remember early in the season Griffiths scored and ran to Rodgers and jumped on him celebrating, Rodgers fined him for it according to broony, thought at the time it was a bit harsh
The thumb - proving Lofty and lolercoaster wrong since 2014
Personally I think Rodgers is judging Leigh a bit on past endeavours, like his public dissents against Deila. Relatively his behaviour has been exemplary this year. On the pitch at least. There were rumours on KDS that him getting dropped was due to turning up for training smelling of booze.
Oh and there was that incident at the weekend were apparently Rodgers went mental at him for not warming up correctly.
Wouldnt be surprised if there is pressure from Dembele's agent/Lawwell to play him as much as possible to keep his value up
