Photos: Leigh Griffiths celebrates Celtic goal

Leigh Griffiths of Celtic is congratulated by manager Brendan Rodgers as he is substituted during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers FC and Celtic FC at Ibrox Stadium...

Celtic's Leigh Griffiths was the picture of passion after his goal on Tuesday.

Leigh Griffiths bagged his first goal for over a month as Celtic beat Dundee 2-0 on Boxing Day.

Brendan Rodgers's side moved 11 points clear at the top of the Premiership as first-half goals from James Forrest and a resurgent Griffiths did the damage.

The 27-year-old has, by his own admission, endured a frustrating time with Celtic lately, having started just one game in all competitions since November 29.

He told The Glasgow Evening Times after the win: "It's been a frustrating time for me, not scoring and not playing as much as I would like,” he said.

“I got the nod today and I managed to contribute with a goal and help the team get three points."

But the Scottish hitman - valued at £6 million, according to The Record - showed just how much he loves Celtic by patting the badge in an impassioned goal celebration.
