Uefa have charged Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths for “provoking” Linfield fans in the aftermath of last Friday’s Champions League clash, much to the fury of the Parkhead faithful.

After all, the player had a glass bottle aimed at his skull earlier in the match, and tying a Celtic scarf around the post is a frivolous charge in comparison. On the other hand, the two incidents are separate, and Uefa have the right to launch disciplinary proceedings if they believe the player fell foul of their regulations. So, what do you think?
