Celtic have announced that Leigh Griffiths has agreed a one-year contract extension.

Griffiths was out of contract at Celtic at the end of last month, but the Scottish Premiership giants have decided to keep the Scotland international striker for another season.

The 30-year-old has been on the books of the Hoops since January 2014 when he joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The striker has scored 123 goals in 261 appearances in all competitions for the Glasgow giants so far.

Griffiths has won the Scottish Premiership title seven times, the Scottish Cup on three occasions, and the Scottish League Cup four times with the Hoops.

The striker told Celtic’s official website: “I am delighted to extend my time at the Club. 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 Manager Ange 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.” 

Celtic are rated at 5/4 by Betfair to win the Scottish Premiership title next season.
