Leigh Griffiths delivers Twitter message to Rangers fans after Celtic derby win
By Danny Wright
Striker Leigh Griffiths has accused Rangers fans of throwing things at him when Celtic beat them 2-0 at Ibrox on Saturday.
Griffiths, 27, got himself on the scoresheet in the second half to round off an emphatic Old Firm win against the Light Blues to see his side stamp their authority at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
After the game, the former Hibernian and Wolves forward took to his personal Twitter account to give a message of defiance to the Rangers fans in the wake of his accusations.
“You can shout and throw things all you like, I’ll continue to do what I do best. Delighted to score again on my 100th league appearance. On to Wednesday,” he said.

Griffiths enjoyed his goal by celebrating in front of the Rangers supporters, who aren’t afraid to show any animosity towards the Scotland international.

His second-half strike, which came thanks to an inch-perfect pass from Patrick Roberts, was only the first time that he has found the net in the Premiership since the opening day win over Hearts.
Across all competitions this term, the striker has scored six goals in 13 appearances, but he may now find his spot in the first-team under threat as Moussa Dembele nears full match fitness after returning from a thigh injury.
Next up for Celtic is a trip to Belgium in the Champions League when they take on Anderlecht.
The game is no doubt a must-win for the Bhoys, will are looking to bounce back from their 5-0 loss against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.
