Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths thanked supporters on Twitter for making the trip to Wembley as Scotland were beaten 3-0 by England in their World Cup qualifier on Friday night.

Gordon Strachan’s men conceded three defensively poor goals with Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill heading their efforts on target.

This despite the Scots having 12 shots on goals and producing a number of guilt edge opportunities at the home of football.

Griffiths played the full match, but failed to inspire his team to victory as he posted this message on his personal Twitter account.

“Gutted about the result,” said Griffiths. “Thanks to every single fan who made the trip down, tremendous as always.”

The defeat against England means Scotland drop down to fifth in Group F with four points, only above Malta in the table, while their opponents remain top on ten points from four games.

Former Wolves forward Griffiths is yet to get on the scoresheet for his home country in nine games.

Griffiths has played 17 Scottish Premiership, Champions League and League Cup games for Brendan Rodgers side where he has scored nine goals.
