Linfield to probe bottle incident involving Celtic's Griffiths

Rodgers has since called on the footballing authorities to do more to make the pitch a safer environment for players following a number of incidents of objects being hurled at footballers in recent seasons.

At full time, the 26-year-old tied a Celtic scarf to one of the posts in a gesture which angered the home support further, and Sutton believes he was "out of order" and diminished the fact that Griffiths was booked after removing the missles from the pitch. We are obviously very disappointed that a small number of people chose not to respect the club's wishes.

In an incredible decision by Spanish referee Alejandro Hernandez, Griffiths was booked for time wasting as he complained about the missiles being thrown his way - a yellow card that Rodgers told the Daily Mail was "strange". "There will be serious and lasting consequences for anyone involved".

Linfield manager David Healy claimed not to have seen any object being thrown and backed the home fans. You don't want that to happen in any ground. I thought it was odd to see him getting booked for it.

He added: "I didn't see what it was but if that is the case then there's always a worry".

Benyu was a stand-out for the Hoops in his first run out at Celtic Park, despite the defeat to Lyon and Rodgers said: "Initially the plan was to have him in, thinking he can get an idea of how we work at the club and then go on loan".

In an ironic twist of fate, Coulter's ordeal came after she expressed her famously unusual opinion in April when Dr. More than 32 seemingly angry tweets by Coulter followed her inconvenience on a flight from NY to Florida.

"I took him off because he was booked and sometimes you never know how these games go".

Celtic were comfortable victors as they looked to set up a third qualifying round meeting with either Norwegian champions Rosenborg or Irish title winners Dundalk.

"The referee made a mistake and I hope it is rescinded", said Bonner.

The match was played in a very good spirit and both teams played their part in delivering a highly competitive sporting occasion. They can be tricky ties.

Celtic lost 4-0 against the French side but were goalless at half-time and three goals came in the final half hour when Rodgers introduced a number of young players.
