Leigh Griffiths: Fresh footage being probed

Leigh Griffiths: Fresh footage being probed

The alleged incident could land the Celtic striker in more trouble with the governing body and his club.

The 23-year-old former Hibernian player has already been fined by Celtic and faces SFA disciplinary charges after he was filmed singing about Hearts' financial strife in a bar before the recent Edinburgh derby.

Speaking last week, Celtic manager Neil Lennon, who signed Griffiths from Wolves in January, said: "I don't want him doing any more - otherwise his career at Celtic won't be as long as he maybe wants it to be."

Griffiths was originally charged with a breach of disciplinary rule 86, which covers 'not acting in the best interests of Association Football'.

The SFA could issue a second charge or re-issue the original charge taking into account the new footage which would make it a more serious matter.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
