The fall-out from Sunday’s big game between Celtic and Rangers rolls on, it always does after these games, and the latest talking point comes from striker Leigh Griffiths.
Speaking exclusively to The Evening Times, the Celtic star has fired a shot at Rangers and their fans for over-celebrating their point at Celtic Park on Sunday.
Clint Hill equalised late in the game after a Stuart Armstrong strike, prompting scenes of celebration in the away end.
That’s amused the 26 year old striker though, who says supporters celebrated the goal as if they’d won the league.
As quoted by The Evening Times, Griffiths said:
Rangers fans will all get a bit excited now, thinking that they can come and do exactly the same to us in the semi-final as they did last season. You saw the Rangers fans after the game cheering as though they had won the league. They would have snapped anyone’s hand for a point before they came here.
However that jibe has not bothered Gers supporters one bit, who feel wholly justified what was a well earned point after three derby defeats in a row. Rangers fans have had a pretty tough season and heading to Celtic Park with a caretaker manager to get a point must be seen as a pretty fantastic result.
They’ve taken to Twitter to respond and send some jibes of their own back to the Celtic star…
@Record_Sport Haha what a childish comment. We're laughing at them for bringing back the conspiracies over a draw ???? not celebrating it.
