Leigh Griffiths apologises to Celtic fans on Twitter... Adam Virgo responds

Celtic U-20s

The Bhoys striker took to social media after Friday night's 1-1 draw at Hamilton.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was downbeat on Twitter on Friday night.

Indeed, the 25-year-old scored for the Hoops as they drew 1-1 at Hamilton Academical. At the same time, however, Griffiths missed a penalty.

And, while Ronny Deila felt the goalkeeper had produced a good save against Celtic's top scorer, Griffiths took to social media suggesting he had taken a poor spot-kick...

In response, Adam Virgo defended Griffiths, suggesting Celtic would be nowhere without the 'brilliant' forward this season. The striker was grateful for the praise:

However, the 25-year-old went on to clarify his earlier tweet, apologising to fans and suggesting he doesn't think he's the best in the world...

Celtic are now seven points clear of Aberdeen but will see that lead reduced to just four if the Dons win their game in hand.

Another draw will no doubt disappoint Celtic fans and, while they remain in pole position in the title race, it looks as though there could yet be some twists and turns this season.
