'Big blow', 'Real shame' - Celtic fans gutted as 27-year-old suffers injury v Hibernian
Celtic fans have been reacting on social media to the news that Leigh Griffiths has suffered an injury against Hibernian, in a game which the Bhoys won 1-0.
The Scotland international had just given the Hoops the lead in the game, to score his second goal in two games, before being substituted with what looks like another calf injury.
Supporters were dismayed by the news, with one fan “gutted”.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the news that Griffiths is injured once again:

That's a real shame for Leigh Griffiths that. Gets his chance, scores his goal, gubs his calf.

As for the game itself, Scott Sinclair was guilty of missing an incredible sitter, hitting the bar with the goal gaping.
Griffiths for the Hoops and Brandon Barker and Martin Boyle for Hibernian all came close before Griffiths opened the scoring.
The Hoops were forced into another change at half-time, Craig Gordon injured after a clash with Efe Ambrose and replaced by Dorus de Vries.
Sinclair missed another good chance to score early in the second-half, being denied by Ofir Marciano.
Hibernian then had a good spell in the game without putting de Vries under any pressure, before John McGinn forced the substitute goalkeeper into a save.
The Hoops held on for the win, as they stayed 11 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
