Leigh Griffiths has not yet played a competitive match for Celtic in this season

Celtic and Dundee have been in discussions about a loan deal for Parkhead striker Leigh Griffiths.

Although the 31-year-old signed a new one year contract with Celtic in summer, he has not been able to get a spot in manager AngePostecoglou.

Griffiths was a member of Dens Park for two years, 2009-2011. He then joined Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Dundee are competing for the ex-Scotland striker.

Griffiths is yet to play this season despite signing a contract extension in July.

Griffiths was cleared last month of any criminality in relation to allegedly inappropriate messages sent via social media to teenage girls.

After allegations about a girl, the former Hibs forward was returned to Scotland's Premiership club's training base.

Police Scotland then discovered that they were looking into a second case.

Celtic has signed Liam Scales, a 23-year-old defender from Shamrock Rovers in a four year deal.

Shamrock has hosted the Republic of Ireland Under-21 International for two years, where they made 50 appearances.

Postecoglou, Celtic manager, said that Liam was a promising young player that has impressed him.
