Leigh Griffiths: Named SPL player of the month for February.
Leigh Griffiths has been named Clydesdale Bank SPL player of the month for February.
The Hibernian striker surged to the top of the scoring charts after finding the net in each of his club's four matches during the period.
However, the feat was not enough to earn him a place in Gordon Strachan's World Cup qualifying squad for the upcoming games against Serbia and Wales.
Griffiths, on loan from Wolves for the season, took his tally for the campaign to 22 with a hat-trick in Hibs' 4-2 Scottish Cup win over Kilmarnock last weekend.
A delighted Griffiths told Hibs' official website: "It's always nice to get recognition and I would like to dedicate this award to our fans who have stuck with us throughout the season.
"I'm enjoying my football now and hopefully it shows in my performances. I love playing for Hibs and scoring goals so couldn't be happier.
"Hopefully we can build on our current form and I can play my part in helping the team win as many matches as possible, starting on Sunday against Hearts."
