Should Griffiths face a ban for his reaction?
He deserves a fine atleast!
He's done nothing wrong!
Sensationalism at it’s very worst
He took the tape off his socks and threw it away. What a joke of a headline.

One guy raging, the rest laughing. Hardly angry scenes.

objects? It was a bit of tape probably covered in the muck they put on that awful killie pitch

While the ending to his outing on Wednesday was controversial, Griffiths scored his second goal in just as many games. He had also scored for the club in the weekend’s Scottish Cup fourth-round clash against Partick Thistle, helping the team to a 2-1 win.
So far this season, the Scotsman has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the club. He has racked up a tally of five goals, assisting twice. The start against the Killies was his first in the Premiership since starting against Motherwell early in the season.
Last season, the striker had made 20 appearances in all competitions for the club. He managed to score six times and got two assists, but took a break from the game in the second half of the campaign due to mental health issues.
What do we think?
While Griffiths certainly did look angry at the end of the game, it is anyone’s guess what exactly happened in that incident. Griffiths’ form means a lot to Celtic and him coming back to a goalscoring run can help them a lot.
