Investigations over bottle incident

Investigations over bottle incident

Linfield will carry out investigations after a bottle was thrown at Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths during the Champions League second qualifying round 2-0 victory at Windsor Park.

However, the 26-year-old was actually cautioned by referee Alejandro Hernandez for delaying a second-half corner in order to retrieve the bottle.

Objects had already been thrown at Griffiths earlier in the game, while substitute Jonny Hayes was similarly targeted.

"It happens in other grounds, it's not just here," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "It's not ideal in any situation. You don't want that to happen in any ground. It was strange him getting booked for it.

"It could have been a really difficult game for us but in the main we dealt well with it," he added. "They can be tricky ties. But the players came through it."
