Typically with a return to form and prominence there are plenty of folk trying to take Leigh Griffiths down a peg or two.
The striker scored Celtic’s second goal in the 3-1 victory then delivered the corner for Chris Jullien to head home the decisive third.
As he left the pitch to the predictable abuse that supporters feel immune to deliver he threw tape into a bin which upset one fan even more.

Throughout Thursday all sorts of nonsense was spouted about Griffiths ‘aiming an object’ at Kilmarnock fans as attempts were made to push the SFA Compliance Officer into action.
Yesterday Celtic TV released their own coverage of the match including an after match clip of Griffiths going out of his way to sign a programme for a fan in the same section of the ground as the ‘binman’.

There are plenty of examples of the Scotland striker helping out others, Griffiths is one of the most approachable players in the game but remains a target for loud mouthed fans and pundits with an axe to grind.
