Have your say

Celtic are 90 minutes away from reaching the Champions League after a 5-2 victory over Hapoel Beer-Sheva at Parkhead.

Integral to the win was striker Leigh Griffiths, who put in a man of the match performance with two goals and an assist.

His second goal, a free-kick curled right into the top corner from the corner of the area, particularly caught the eye.

HOW THE PUNDITS REACTED

@TonyBarretTimes - What a free kick by Leigh Griffiths!

@McNallyMirror - Wonderful, curving Griffiths free kick soars into the postage stamp corner to give #Celtic a commanding 3-0 HT lead. Composed, cool supremacy!

@BBCTomEnglish - Sensational first half from a reborn Celtic. That was high-class stuff. So dominant. That Griffiths free-kick? Nakamura would doff his cap.

@RaeComm - What can you say about Leigh Griffiths that hasn’t already been said? Has that quality all fine strikers possess. Instinct.

HOW THE FANS REACTED

@marcmcardle1 - That Leigh Griffiths free kick last night is as good as anything Shunsuke Nakamura scored for Celtic. Tap bin!

@grantmcquade - If that was Payet scoring the free kick people would be raving about it. Yet because it’s Griffiths nothing is said.

@KajunFirefly - The noise Chris Sutton makes when Griffiths scores the free-kick is delightful.

@LewisRankin3 - James Forrest assisted a goal, we scored 5 in Europe, Brown was MotM and Griffiths scored a free kick. The end is near.
