‘Already Goal Of The Season’ ‘Some Strike’ Fans On Twitter Are Delighted To See Celtic Ace Score In Champions League Qualifier

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths said he had to hold back the tears after scoring against Nomme Kalju last night.

The Hoops star gave a telling reminder of his talent when he hit a superb free kick in the 5-0 win in the Champions League qualifier:

Griffiths has been sidelined because of personal problems but after the match, he said he was thrilled to hit the back of the net for the first time since November last year:

“It’s up there with the England moments if I’m honest. A big thank you to my team-mates and everyone connected with the club – if it wasn’t for them then I wouldn’t be back on the pitch.”

“Hopefully that’s the start of more goals. My kids were watching me and I had friends in the stands too. I was close to crying.”

Supporters on Twitter are absolutely delighted to see the 28-year-old back in the goals:

It was a special strike, and it will hopefully help Griffiths as he looks to get back to doing what he does best on the pitch.

The second leg should now be a formality for Celtic, with other goals coming from Callum McGregor, Kristoffer Ajer and a brace from Ryan Christie. They face Nomme Kalju in Estonia on Tuesday night.
