Griffiths told The Scottish Sun: “There will be a wall of noise and our fans won’t be heard as much. There is normally a massive support behind the goal when Celtic go to Ibrox.

“Now we only have the corner and we need to try to silence the home crowd. Will it drive us on? As players, our objective is to go out in every game and be the best team.

“We want to do that by playing a certain way and winning games. If we do that, we will silence the home crowd — and you WILL be able to hear our fans.”
