SFA grant two-week delay in Griffiths disciplinary case

The Scottish Football Association's disciplinary hearing into allegations that Leigh Griffiths engaged in racist chanting has been delayed for a second time at the request of the Celtic striker's lawyer.

The hearing - which relates to three charges of alleged offensive signing - was due to be held today, although the SFA has since agreed to adjourn for two weeks, until June 5. That is to allow Police Scotland to complete their own investigation.

Griffiths, a lifelong Hibernian supporter, was filmed allegedly chanting that former Hearts player Rudi Skacel was "a refugee" ahead of an Edinburgh derby at Tynecastle this season.
