Leigh Griffiths' future at Celtic remains up in the air as John Kennedy revealed it will be the next manager who decides if he deserves a new contract.

The striker's deal is up at the end of the season but there is an option on the terms to add another 12 months.

It has been speculated that Griffiths could well be on his way out of the club due to the uncertainty surrounding his deal, the new boss and the club's stance on where he fits in after failing to play as often as he'd have liked this season.

But, when asked if there had been any update on the attacker's situation, Kennedy responded: "Nothing as yet. I think this is going to be a conversation, because there hasn’t been any decision made in terms of the management and everything else that goes with it. 

"Again this is one that we have to get through this week and then obviously the club will have to have a discussion with Leigh on that. There’s nothing happening at the moment on that, there is not an update on it."

Kennedy went on to explain that it's not just the Scotland cap who is affected by the lack of a manager in place, as there are other players in the squad who also don't yet know where their future lies.

"It is the same with several issues around the playing squad," he added. "The players have been great with that, the players who are in that situation, they’ve been very professional in their work and they understand the situation has not been ideal, but they're parking that for the time being and that's something that'll have to be addressed in the next couple of weeks, or next week, I'd imagine."
