Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has been cleared by police over allegations of sending inappropriate messages to two schoolgirls online.
Police Scotland said it had established “no criminality” after carrying out a “full assessment” on claims the 30-year-old exchanged improper messages with a 15-year-old girl as well as another teen girl on social media.
Griffiths, a dad of five, was sent home from Celtic’s pre-season training camp last week after officers began their probe.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “In relation to recent reporting regarding alleged inappropriate communications online, a full assessment has been carried out and it’s been established there is no criminality.”
Celtic has been asked for comment.
The club took up a one-year option on the striker’s contract earlier this month after his Parkhead future had been in doubt.
