Leigh Griffiths has signed a one-year extension to keep him at Celtic.

The striker, 30, had been rumoured to be leaving after appearing to remove all links to the club from his social media accounts this week.

However after discussions with new head coach Ange Postecoglou the hitman has re-signed and will remain after the club took up their option of a one-year extension.

"I am delighted to extend my time at the Club," he told the club website. "Celtic is a club I love and want to do all I can to play my part again in bringing success to our supporters.
"I'm looking forward to the season ahead and working with the new gaffer and the rest of the lads. It is an exciting time for the Club and I wanted to be part of the Club’s future. I'll be doing everything I can to help us get back to where we all want to be."
Celtic boss Postecoglou added: “I am really pleased to keep Leigh with us for another season at least. I have had very positive conversations with Leigh and he clearly understands my expectations and more importantly the club’s.

“Leigh has already proven himself as one of the top strikers in Scotland and I look forward to working with him so that we can bring success to Celtic Football Club."
