Young Celtic fan is left gobsmacked as Leigh Griffiths hands over jersey

Leigh Griffiths made his return to the Celtic side today as a second half substitute and it’s a day one awestruck fan will never forget.

While the striker didn’t manage to get on the scoresheet in the 4-0 win over Livingston, he did light up one youngster’s afternoon as he handed over his jersey at the end of the match.

The overjoyed kid couldn’t believe his luck as he was presented with the top, something he’s sure to cherish for a long time.

The brilliant moment at the end of the game was captured for posterity by an SNS photographer.

Griffiths is seen handing over his Hoops to a clearly gobsmacked youngster.

The Scotland striker will be hoping today marks a turning point after his well-documented absence for much of the past year.

Griffiths returned in the summer and showed he hasn’t forgotten where the goals are in his time off, but a niggling injury has kept him out of the side in recent weeks.

A deadly double in a run out for the reserves served notice that Griffiths was back and raring to go.

Neil Lennon was glad to see the lethal striker back in contention, as were the fans who gave him a thunderous ovation as he replaced Odsonne Edouard.

And while the scoring was left to the Frenchman, Scott Brown and James Forrest, for one lucky young fan Leigh Griffiths will always be today’s man of the match.
