SFA delay disciplinary hearing for Celtic’s Griffiths

The Scottish Football Association has postponed the disciplinary hearing of Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths.

The Scottish Football Association has postponed the disciplinary hearing of Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths.

The 23-year old Scottish striker was charged with ‘bringing the game into disrepute and acting against the best interests of football’ after he was filmed singing derogatory chants towards Heart of Midlothian at the end of April.

Griffiths, who joined Celtic from Wolves in January, was acting as a Hibernian supporter when he was seen singing and chanting which prompted the SFA to act.

He was due to face the charges on Thursday but his hearing has now been delayed until June according to a SFA spokesman.

"At the request of his solicitor, the principal hearing date relating to the notice of complaint issued to Leigh Griffiths on Wednesday, April 9 has been adjourned until Thursday, June 5, to allow for the conclusion of the ongoing criminal investigation by Police Scotland,” said the spokesman.
