    His second goal was a half chance at best. Excellent header.

    Incredible record for a striker in any league.

    Funny though.

    If an Icelandic player had a record like that, in a much worse league than the SPL, teams from down south would be lining up.

    The Griff has somehow been underrated throughout his career, despite constantly outscoring everyone else.

    Even at Wolves he scored 50%, much more than their other strikers, but was sent back to Hibs. Where he of course also scored 50%

    We are lucky to have him.

    The big positive of the night.

    Given his chance and he's scored 2 goals against good opposition.

    Griff keeps on proving he´s a class goalscorer. Our number 1 man no doubt.

    Why was he subbed? Game changer in a negative way; Ronny.

    Think I would have been tempted to keep him on. He was still racing to close players down when he got subbed.

    He had no right to win that header. Especially given his size.

    I thought it was an absolute peach of a goal.

    He had to generate all the pace as well. Henrik would have been proud of that.

    Should definitely have stayed on. Fantastic from him tonight, looked like he was gonna score the whole time he was on the pitch.

    Hopefully more of the same from him, all round game is clearly getting better, hold up play especially and tell you what he has some leap on him now. Could see it was improving last season during games but now he hangs so well.

    Has to start the away leg. Head and shoulders above anything Ciftci offers. Different type of players? Whatever. Griff will get you goals.
