LEIGH GRIFFITHS delivered the goods again for Celtic last night when he grabbed the only goal of a tense Betfred League Cup quarter-final encounter against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.
The frontman, who has now claimed 103 strikes in his Hoops career, was thwarted twice by Perth keeper Zander Clark earlier in the game, but, with only seven minutes remaining, he got his revenge.
CQN’s ace lensman Geo captured the action in the moment Griff swooped to set up a semi-final shoot-out with Hearts next month.
