Did Leigh Griffiths goad Linfield crowd with Rangers gesture?

UEFA charge Celtic over Griffiths 'provoking ' fans

UEFA charge Celtic over Griffiths 'provoking ' fans

Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic scored as Celtic won a hostile first-leg encounter at Windsor Park in Belfast, but Scotland global Griffiths was targeted by objects thrown from a section of the home crowd while taking a corner.

Sinclair echoed the sense of dismay in the Celtic camp over the incidents in which bottles and coins were thrown at Windsor Park with Leigh Griffiths astonishingly booked for picking up one of the projectiles as he prepared to take a corner.

Griffiths didn't help to calm tensions within the ground following the final whistle as he proceeded to tie a Celtic scarf around one of the goalposts, something he also did when the Hoops overcame Rangers at Ibrox last season.

"Everyone was scratching their heads over why he got a yellow card", said Sinclair "It was disappointing he got bottles thrown at him".

"You sometimes get these scenes throughout the country, not just here but other places as well".

I'm Getting Under Conor McGregor's Skin
What did you make of the world tour, and will you be purchasing the fight on pay-per-view (PPV)? The tour included stops in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and London.

You don't want that to happen in any ground.

"It could have been a really hard game for us but in the main we dealt well with it".

"So it's not ideally what you would like to see".

"It was odd him getting booked for it". "If you take that away then the evening was a good evening".

"We hopefully will have five more games in the qualifying competition so we didn't want to risk anything if he was getting frustrated".

NBA Summer League: James scores 32, but Suns fall to Grizzlies
Since graduating, he signed a multi-year deal with the Spurs after going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft. Forbes has begun to assert himself on the floor and do what he does well to help the team win.

"The talk is more on the football and for us the score line is okay. The scoreline was okay, it could have been better but it gives us the advantage for the second leg".

Sinclair said: "I didn't see what happened with Griff at the end because I was walking in".

The 28-year-old former Chelsea, Manchester City and Aston Villa man believes Caulker could find similar fulfilment on and off the pitch if he moved to Glasgow.

"Players go on to the field and it should be a safe environment for them".

Following the game Linfield published a statement on the incident, claiming that 'there will be serious and lasting consequences for anyone involved'.

McCain Staying in Arizona After Blood Clot Surgery
Surgeons removed the clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy through an incision in the 80-year-old lawmaker's eyebrow. His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went "very well" and he is in good spirits.

"The club will be reviewing our own footage and investigating", read a Linfield statement. We are obviously very disappointed that a small number of people chose not to respect the club's wishes.
