Leigh Griffiths delivers verdict on Celtic draw against Inverness
By Dominic Toner
Leigh Griffiths believes that Celtic should have killed the game off against Inverness on Sunday.
The reigning Scottish champions dropped their first points of the season in an entertaining 2-2 draw as Alex Fisher scored a late equaliser for Inverness.
Celtic were keen to maintain their 100 per cent start to the new season and looked to be heading that way after Scott Sinclair gave them a 2-1 lead in the first-half.
The attacker has now scored in each of his five league appearances this season and has made the perfect adjustment since his move from Aston Villa in the summer.
Tom Rogic had opened the scoring for the visitors and Billy Kee had levelled the match for Inverness in a busy first period.

Griffiths, who missed the match with a calf injury, revealed his disappointment at the result on his official Twitter account.
“Disappointing result. Always a difficult place to go,” he said. “Game should’ve been out of sight though before the equaliser.”
