Celtic: Fans turn on Sky after Kris Boyd comments on Leigh Griffiths

Celtic: Fans turn on Sky after Kris Boyd comments on Leigh Griffiths

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was hammered by Sky Sports pundit Kris Boyd on Wednesday night following his pointed goal celebration and reaction after being substituted.

Boyd had previously said on  Sky Sports [via The Scottish Sun] that the 29-year-old had four weeks to save his Celtic career and, after the 29-year-old scored against Kilmarnock in midweek, he made a ‘shush’ gesture towards the press gantry where the pundit was sitting. Upon his withdrawal later in the game, the Hoops striker removed some sock tape and threw it in the general direction of home fans at Rugby Park, sparking an angry response from one spectator (as per Daily Record).

Speaking on Sky Sports [via The Scottish Sun] after the game, Boyd accused Griffiths of “not doing it on the training field” and added: “Never mind coming for us, go and do it yourself. Perform on the pitch, score goals and actually get back to the level that you should be playing at”. He also said that the Celtic man’s tape-throwing response to being taken off was “not right either”.

Boyd’s ongoing spat with Griffiths comes despite him having his own mental health foundation, the Kris Boyd Charity, and the 29-year-old Hoops attacker putting his career on hold for several months last year due to a battle with depression (as per BBC).

Following Boyd’s scathing remarks, these Celtic fans centred their dissatisfaction on Sky for hiring him, with some supporters calling for a boycott against the broadcaster:
