Brendan Rodgers & Leigh Griffiths Literally Kiss And Make Up After Touchline Spat

Brendan Rodgers & Leigh Griffiths Literally Kiss And Make Up After Touchline Spat

Celtic cruised past Partick Thistle to keep their undefeated season hopes alive with a comfortable 5-0 win on Thursday night.

Two stunning goals from Patrick Roberts were the pick of the bunch as far as the highlights were concerned, but Leigh Griffiths continued his excellent recent form with a strong showing for the hour he was on the pitch.

It was when he was withdrawn, however, that we noticed he was not a happy man. He clearly wanted to stay out there and improve his goals tally for the season, but after he was replaced by Scott Sinclair he gave manager Brendan Rodgers a piece of his mind:

Unusual to see that, as Celtic's team spirit has been tremendous this season, but Griffiths will always want to play when he can.

There was no ill will between the pair, and that was confirmed as Sky Sports captured a moment between Rodgers and Griffiths after the final whistle.

As the Celtic players paid tribute to the 5,000 travelling fans that came to watch them play, Rodgers could be seen explaining his point of view with Griffiths before laying a kiss on him to patch things up.

Rodgers can be a wee bit intense with his players, but there's no doubt they love playing for him, and clearly there is no issue between Griffiths and his manager.

Kudos to the Sky Sports cameramen too, as by capturing that moment they likely spared Brendan Rodgers a lot of needless questions in his post-match interview.
