Griffiths laughs off Ibrox rage over his scarf antics as lock out looms

Image for Griffiths laughs off Ibrox rage over his scarf antics as lock out looms

When the excuses are stripped away there are two people largely responsible for the Ibrox ticket row- Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths.

The sight of those two celebrating at full time in front of the Broomloan Road has become just too much for the people to handle.

For three seasons Ibrox managers have been identifying players to sort Brown out with the list of flops stretching from Joey Barton to Graham Dorrans with the hoops skipper taking on all comers and coming back for more.

Griffiths has scored in two of Celtic’s four match winning run at Ibrox but it’s not really putting the ball in the net that upsets the People.

In December 2016 he gleefully tied a Celtic scarf to the goalposts which sent rage off the radar on the rage-ometer.

Since then burly stewards have man-marked the goalposts with the sort of enthusiasm that Mark Warburton, Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murty would appreciate.

Later this month the Broomloan Road Stand will be free of Celtic fans but that won’t reduce the determination of Griffiths and Co to make it Five in a Row at the home of the tribute act.

Looking back at his scarf tying antics the former Hibs striker told The Sun: “I got into bother at Linfield for doing it then unfortunately for me they had two stewards at the post.

It’s probably the closest I’ve been marked at Ibrox! It’s very difficult to put another one there now but it’s just a bit of banter.”

With less than three weeks to go until the December 29 clash Celtic have still to announce whether they will accept the 800 tickets believed to be on offer.
