LEIGH GRIFFITHS will come back into the squad and continue as a Celtic player after his latest episode.
The striker was sent home from the Wales pre-season training camp after reports of online behaviour emerged.
Police investigated the matter but found no criminality had been found.
The player is now back in training and will be available for Celtic this season according to the manager.

The striker signed a new one-year deal with the club just a few weeks ago but many fans have grown wary of the sideshow Leigh continually causes.
The fitness saga last season was enough for many to lose faith in the one time top goalscorer.
In reality, the player has not hit the heights at Celtic for a long time and could serve as a distraction in the coming months.
Leigh has let himself down on several occasions and doesn’t appear to learn from his mistakes. Will this season be any different if we do keep a hold of the striker?
I can’t help but feel this is a massive own goal by the club.
