Leigh Griffiths is back tonight in the battle for Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against Midtjylland in Parkhead.

The 30-year-old striker was sent home from the Hoops training center in Wales earlier this month when the police and the Parkhead Club investigated its social media activities.

Scottish Police said they determined « no crime » after doing a « full assessment » of allegations that Griffiths (pictured) had inappropriate messages with a 15-year-old girl as well as another teenage girl in exchanged on social media.

Before visiting the Danish team, Celtic trainer Ange Postecoglou said: “He is ready to go. I think I said before that the whole process with Leigh was pretty easy for me.

« In view of the incident, it appears that other people have taken control of this investigation and, as far as I know, everything has been sorted in terms of understanding what happened.

« From then on he was made available and came back into my mind as a footballer, » he added.

« And I’m not the kind of absolving guy, but with a limit of 24 hours a day and the amount of things to focus on, I’ve decided to get on with things focus that I can control.

« And once Leigh is back on the roster and everything is resolved regarding the incident, he’ll be a Celtic player again, part of the roster again and available for selection. »
