Chris Sutton reiterated his frustration on Twitter that Celtic were not awarded a late penalty in the draw against Rangers.
The Bhoys saw their 22-game winning run ended by rivals Rangers on Sunday in a 1-1 draw, with Stuart Armstrong and Clint Hill on the scoresheet.
However, forward Griffiths believes he should have been awarded a last-minute penalty when he was challenged by Hill in the penalty area.
Ex-Celtic striker Sutton has reminded people of the incident and compared it to a moment in Chelsea’s game against Manchester United on Monday night.
United defender Matteo Darmian was penalised for a foul on Willian and Sutton compared it to the Hill’s challenge on Griggiths.
“Tackle from Darmian on Willian similar to Hill on Griffiths but outside the box. Guess the outcome free kick or play on?” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Celtic maintained their unbeaten run in the league despite dropping points and are now just two wins away from the league title.
Brendan Rodgers has enjoyed a fantastic first season in Scotland and is still unbeaten against fierce rivals, who will now be under the tenure of recently appointed manager Pedro Caixinha.
The two clubs will resume their rivalry in April when they meet in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.
In other Celtic news, a report details that the club’s £25,000-a-week top earner can’t get in their squad.
