Leigh Griffiths kicks a flare into the St Johnstone followers
Fans in Scotland know that Leigh Griffiths has a tendency to find himself on the news for one reason or another and he recently faced allegations of inappropriate news exchanged with a 15-year-old.
The police investigated and decided that there was no crime involved, but it was a disaster for his Celtic career. He was surprisingly taken on after a bad season and the change of coach, but this incident resulted in his being sent home from Celtic’s prep training and he was no longer with Ange Postecoglu after that.
He returned to Dundee on loan to revive his career but has yet to find the net and their league cup hopes are over after losing at home to their Tayside rivals and double-winners St. Johnstone.
Griffiths has been the subject of some less generous chants from the Saints fans, but he was clearly shaken when he shot a flare back into the stands in response:

Obviously, firing the torch isn’t the best idea, but there have been no reports of injuries, while it will be interesting to see if further action is taken after that.
