Griffiths and Johansen react on Twitter to Celtic's 2-1 victory

Celtic defeated St Johnstone 2-1 on Saturday and their two goal-scorers took to social media after the game.

Celtic defeated St Johnstone on Saturday to move six points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring just 35 seconds into the match, the 24-year-old racing clear before the hosts’ defence had settled.

Stefan Johansen then doubled Celtic’s advantage shortly after half-time, but Michael O’Halloran did what no other player has managed so far this calendar year, scoring past the visitors and halving their lead in the process.

Only some fine goalkeeping from Craig Gordon ensured Celtic remained in the lead, and shortly after the match both Johansen and Griffiths took to Twitter to express their feelings at another job well done.

Griffiths, who netted his eighth goal of the campaign, wrote, “Delighted to be back in the team today, another goal and three points,” before switching his attention to the Europa League tie against Inter Milan.

Johansen acknowledged how important it was to get another three points on the board, and now all eyes will turn to the match against the Italian giants, with European glory still on the agenda at Celtic Park this season.
