Some Celtic supporters were delighted today after it was reported that striker Leigh Griffiths would not be cited by the Scottish FA after an incident against Hamilton on Sunday.

Talk of a potential ban on Griffiths has been swirling for the last 24 hours after he got tangled up with Accies player Sam Woods in the first half of Celtic’s 4-1 Scottish Premiership.

However, The Glasgow Times reported this afternoon that a panel of three experts had decided the incident was not worth a sending off and as a result, no action will be taken.

Griffiths has become a regular again in the Hoops first-team, scoring three goals in his last five appearances for Neil Lennon and striking up a fruitful partnership with Odsonne Edouard.

For him to then get a ban would have been a major setback in his comeback, so understandably Celtic fans are pleased with the news from Hampden.
