Leigh Griffiths reacts on Twitter after scoring hat-trick against Kilmarnock

Celtic Stands

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was in fine form during his side's 4-1 win over Kilmarnock.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was delighted to claim the match ball after his brilliant display against Kilmarnock last night.

Celtic beat Killie 4-1, with Griffiths netting three times to secure the victory which moves them closer to taking the title. 

The Bhoys are now eight points clear at the top of the league and they are closing in on claiming the second part of their treble winning aim. 

It would be some achievement if Celtic were able to lift every domestic trophy available to them and Griffiths was pleased to have played such a big part in helping Ronny Deila's men close in on winning the Scottish Premiership.

Griffiths scored three goals in 19 minutes to help his side to the victory and score only the third hat-trick of his career.

The marksman now has 11 goals in his last 15 games, making this his best run at Celtic since he moved to Parkhead. 

Celtic's next game is against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish League Cup this weekend, where Griffiths will be looking to continue his fine goalscoring form.
