Video: Leigh Griffiths responds to Rangers heckler

Celtic forward Leigh Griffiths responds to abuse from a Rangers supporter by informing him: "Your club's dead, mate."

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has responded to abuse from a Rangers supporter by informing the heckler: "Your club's dead, mate."

The 26-year-old was checking in at Edinburgh Airport ahead of his side's trip to Norway for their second-leg Champions League qualifier with Rosenborg on Wednesday night when he was shouted at by several Rangers supporters.

At first they merely chanted his name but then one of them branded the forward a "paedo", prompting Griffiths to respond.

Watch footage of the incident below:

Griffiths faces a late fitness test ahead of the game in Norway as he battles back from a calf injury.
