The former Parkhead striker took a pop at Griffiths’ reaction after his goal against Partick Thistle. Leigh Griffiths is set for another run out on the comeback trail and another chance to stick it to his detractors. Football fans from around the world can buy online Europa League Tickets to enjoy its stunning performances.
The frontman notched against Partick Thistle at the weekend but ex-Celtic striker Charlie Nicholas took a pop, saying: “Griffiths made a pig’s ear of things with his weekend goal celebration.
“Why did he put his fingers in his ears? It is not about a war or creating a so-called agenda. It is about getting himself right as a person – and if he does that, he can become the player he once was.”
Neil Lennon shrugged it off and expects Griffiths to do the same.
He said: “I was just happy to see him scoring. That’s the main thing, far more than the nature of his celebrations.
“Of course Leigh wants to silence his critics. He’s a wee street fighter. He’s got the rascal, a bit of the Devil, in him at times but I like that.
“But he certainly knows how to play center-forward. There’s quietness about him now and he just wants to get on with his business.”
Ex-Celtic star Charlie Nicholas has launched an astonishing blast at Leigh Griffiths for his celebration after scoring against Partick Thistle at the weekend.
Griffiths stuck his fingers in his ears to drown out the noise of critics who claimed his time at Parkhead was over an act that didn’t sit well with Nicholas.
The former Hoops striker, 58, was left “doubting” Griffiths’ mindset and claims he was worried by the message the frontman was sent to supporters.
