LEIGH GRIFFITHS insists he would consider a move abroad in order to help reignite his football career.

The former Celtic striker is without a club at the moment following the expiry of his short-term deal at Falkirk.

The one-time Scotland international has a pedigree of scoring goals for fun on these shores. 

However, a mixture of injuries and off-field issues have seen Griffiths' career spiral.

He spent last season with Dundee and then the Bairns. 

Now, as he looks to get the spark back into his career, the 31-year-old insists nothing if off the table as he looks to get back to his old prolific self.

He told BBC Sportsound: "Right now I honestly have no idea. There will be split opinion of 'is my career finished, do I need to drop down leagues or can I still cut it at the highest level?'

"For me, I can still cut it at the highest level, I fully believe that, and it's about getting that chance to prove myself again. I've kept saying over the years, but I need keep proving myself to people who keep doubting me, there seems nowadays there's more and more. But nobody will be more thrilled to do it than me, but it's about getting that chance and a manager who fully believes I can still cut it.

"Right now, you have to look at every option, it's a dog eat dog world out there, everyone is fighting for contracts and trying to get the best club they can, and I am no different.

"A lot of things have happened over the last couple of years, clubs might not want to be associated with me but I am just working as tirelessly as I can and get myself in the best shape, ready to go into whatever pre-season clubs are at. Then it's just about trying to hit the ground running, put a smile back on my face and be on the back page for all the right reasons.

"100 per cent (about going abroad), hopefully my agent, who is working extremely hard to get me a club, whether that's here, abroad, or down in England, that's something I've got to consider massively.

"I'm not going to lie, my confidence is lower than a snakes belly at the minute and that's because I'm seeing people going back to training, playing games, being back amongst changing rooms.

"I'm doing my work myself in the gym and then watching Sky Sports and seeing everyone back for pre-season.

"Hopefully I can get my confidence back because that's when you see the best of me."
