Celtic fans react on Twitter to Griffiths inclusion v Inverness
By Harvey Byrne
Leigh Griffiths has returned to the Celtic line-up for Saturday’s Scottish Premiership clash against Inverness and fans on Twitter are excited by his partnership with in form forward Moussa Dembele.
Attacking midfielder Tom Rogic has dropped out of the Hoops’ line-up to the bench to make way for the Scotland international for the Celtic Park clash.
Manager Brendan Rodgers has made four changes to his side following the 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in midweek.
Griffiths has come in for Rogic in a tactical switch, while Jozo Simunovic, Callum McGregor, Patrick Roberts have come in for Cristian Gamboa, Emilio Izaguirre and James Forrest.

The 26-year-old forward has found himself in and out of the Hoops line-up this season following the addition of Dembele in the summer.
However, he has still maintained his good form in front of goal with eight goals in 16 encounters for the club this season.
Now fans will be hoping he can work with Dembele up front as they look to secure their sixth league title in a row.
