gross green gizzards

I love LOVE LOVE chicken gizzards. I love the chewiness of them and their unmistakable flavor. however when I bought them the other day from the chinese grocery store, they had this weird greenish like hue to some of them (on certain parts).

I ignored it, bought them, cooked them, and unfortunately ate them despite their odd hue. When I ate the green part, it was really bitter. I am assuming (I have no knowledge whatsoever of chicken anatomy) that the part I ate was tainted with bile, cause of the bitterness?

Anyways, is the green part bad for me, and am I going to be sick because I ate it?
