Manager Neil Lennon is confident that striker Leigh Griffiths will still be at Celtic next season.

"I think he gets antagonised by people and he just needs to learn to take a deep breath and walk away" - Neil Lennon
It follows the SFA charging the Scottish international regarding footage of him singing a song calling former Hearts
player Rudi Skacel "a refugee".

The police are also conducting investigations and Lennon promised he would educate the striker on appropriate conduct.

"We will do all we can to help him along," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "He knows now there is a responsibility to the way he behaves.

"There is no question he has a few issues that we all have in our private life. He has been open and frank about it with me," he continued. "At times, I think he gets antagonised by people and he just needs to learn to take a deep breath and walk away and at times that is not the easiest thing to do."
