Linfield to probe bottle incident involving Celtic's Griffiths

Linfield to probe bottle incident involving Celtic's Griffiths

Celtic put one foot in the Champions League third qualifying round with a 2-0 away win at Windsor Park against Linfield on Friday evening, but one incident before a set-piece was taken has detracted from the on-field contest in the aftermath of the tie.

Rodgers looked to play down the incident, but admitted that player safety has to be a priority.

Effect of the religious undertones, there was a bit of hassle from the home fans who pelted coins and glass bottles at Griffiths at one point in the second half, after the Hoops hitman seemingly made a "5-1" reference with both of his hands.

One supporter did make it onto the surface but was quickly ejected as police and stewards moved in to contain the situation.

She said that she had noticed a bit of dryness and itching, but had not even noticed that any lenses had gone missing. The woman's cataract surgery has been postponed to allow bacteria that had gathered in her eye to clear up.

But there were about 300 travelling fans inside the half-full ground to see first-half goals by Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic secure a first-leg victory for the Scottish champions.

He added: "I didn't see what it was but if that is the case then there's always a worry".

Linfield manager David Healy claimed not to have seen any object being thrown and backed the home fans. You sometimes get these scenes throughout the country, not just here but other places as well. It was maybe a bottle of some sort but whether it is a coin, a bottle or whatever it shouldn't happen.

"As you know Celtic never took the tickets and it would have been nice to see more of them there". I thought it was odd to see him getting booked for it. Credit to the back four, they kept them out for most of the game but we're disappointed with the goals we let in.

"We knew it was going to be a hard game, Celtic are a good team and would have a lot of the possession but the players gave it 100 per cent and it was a huge effort from a part-time side against a full-time one", said former Manchester United keeper Carroll.

"No matter where we go, the Celtic fans are fantastic, they follow us everywhere, home and away, so it was fantastic to see them".

"Roy Carroll was outstanding and made some brilliant saves".
