Astana have accused Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths of punching defender Igor Shitov in the face during the 1-1 draw in their Champions League qualifier.

The Kazakhstan champions posted a tweet on Twitter, claiming that Griffiths lashed out at his opponent.

A video of the incident on the club’s twitter account appeared to show them tangle, with Griffiths swinging his arm towards the defender before he went down in the box.

After the match, Griffiths described the incident as “handbags” which he received a yellow card for from referee Paolo Mazzoleni, shortly before going on to score an equaliser 10 minutes before the end.
