Leigh Griffiths is set to be released by parent club Celtic, reports suggest.

The 31-year-old has been the centre of attention over the past fortnight after Dundee moved to end his loan spell at Dens Park early.

The Dark Blues activated a break clause to do so but the Daily Record have reported that the Parkhead side have themselves triggered a clause to release Griffiths from his Celtic contract this month.
