Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has been arrested in connection with an incident at a pub.

The 24-year-old Scotland international was charged and cautioned with an offence under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act.

The charge relates to an incident at a pub in Edinburgh last year.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 24-year-old man has been arrested and charged."

The arrest came before Griffiths played for Celtic in their SPFL match against Ross County in Dingwall on Saturday afternoon.

The club declined to comment.
