Celtic have reportedly taken action after Kris Boyd’s bitter and inaccurate rant towards their striker Leigh Griffiths.

It transpires the pundit was absolutely wrong.
RecordSport has revealed the club have ‘written’ to Sky Sports about Kris Boyd’s comments.
Record Sport reports: “Celtic have written to Sky Sports to demand answers over Kris Boyd’s controversial comments about Leigh Griffiths.
“Record Sport understands Parkhead chiefs have been inundated by fans complaining about the pundit’s pop at the striker in Wednesday night’s broadcast of their 3-1 win at Rugby Park.”
