Former Celtic striker, Charlie Nicholas, has once again caused anger amongst the Hoops support and, again, it is a goal celebration that has triggered the Sky Sports pundit.

In his Daily Express column (via The Scottish Sun), Nicholas has claimed to be “worried” and “saddened” by Leigh Griffiths reaction to opening the scoring against Partick Thistle on Wednesday evening.

Replicating his “fingers in the ears” tweet after Patryk Klimala was signed for £3.5m, Griffiths was hardly offensive or displayed signs of anything other than joy at scoring his first goal since August. The striker has had his detractors this season and demonstrating that you are not listening to them is a positive sign that he is back and close to his best.

Despite rumoured interest from Leeds United, Griffiths will be a key member or Neil Lennon’s Celtic squad as they look to keep the pressure up on Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership in the title run-in.

Does it matter how Griffiths celebrated his goal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

These fans of the Parkhead club took to Twitter to lambast Nicholas after complaining, once again, about how a Celtic player celebrates his goals.

Of all the stories to come out of the Scottish Cup victory, how Griffiths celebrated his goal really wasn’t the main talking point, scoring his first goal since August and making a positive contribution should’ve been cause for praise – not concern – from someone who considers himself to be a Hoops fan.
