Leigh Griffiths has intimated on Twitter that he is planning another stunt involving his Celtic scarf when the Bhoys visit Ibrox to face Rangers next week.

Both Scottish giants renew hostilities in what will be the first Old Firm derby of the season next Saturday.

The Celtic hitman infuriated Rangers fans last season by tying a Hoops scarf to one of the goal posts after a 2-1 win at Ibrox, before laying the same garment on the turf after a 5-1 win there back in April.

And it would seem as if the Scotland international is planning to complete his hat-trick of scarf-related incidents, if his latest tweet is anything to go by.

Responding to a Twitter user titled 'LeighGriffithsScarf', the former Wolves marksman said to the account holder that he was "in the cupboard until Saturday".

It would be a brazen move by Griffiths, but Rangers know what they must do to stop him: win.

Victory for Pedro Caixinha's side would remove Griffiths's inclination to do anything with a scarf except wrap his face in it, but the odds are against the Gers, who drew 2-2 at Partick Thistle last night.
