Celtic fans give verdict on star's debut vs Linfield - 'Oozed class', 'dominated'

Celtic fans give verdict on star's debut vs Linfield - 'Oozed class', 'dominated'

The sides met at Celtic Park for the second time in six days yesterday.

After the game had finished, Griffiths tied a Celtic scarf around one of the goalposts, an action that angered Linfield supporters, causing some of them to attempt to get on to the pitch.

Celtic face an improper conduct charge for receiving five yellow cards and striker Leigh Griffiths has been charged with provoking spectators.

Celtic cruised into the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League with a 4-0 victory over Linfield, earning it a 6-0 aggregate advantage and a clash with Norwegian champion Rosenborg - the home of Tom Rogic's global team-mate Alex Gersbach.

Uefa takes a no tolerance policy on political banners, and if construed as such by the governing body Celtic could find themselves in hot water once more.

"I don't mind that Celtic are a Scottish club who have an affinity with Ireland, but they can not allow their supporters to show an affinity with Irish terrorists, which is what they have been doing".

The charges against Linfield FC include the throwing of objects onto the pitch and a field invasion by fans.

Celtic said they have launched an inquiry.

"Any support for a paramilitary or proscribed terrorist organisation has no place at Celtic Park".

Griffiths will serve his ban when Celtic hosts Rosenborg in a third qualifying round, first-leg game next Wednesday.

UEFA's disciplinary panel will judge the cases on Thursday, one day after the return match of the second qualifying round tie in Glasgow.

"Celtic are a quality side, we knew that", he said.

Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic scored as Celtic won the encounter in Belfast which passed off largely without major incident, but missiles were thrown at Celtic corner takers Griffiths and Jonny Hayes from a Linfield section of Windsor Park.
