Scottish professional footballer who plays as a striker Leigh Griffiths is on the probe after claims that he send an inappropriate message to a second teenage girl.
A viral image that has already gone viral has circulated across all social media.
The Celtic star has since been staying off public sight and lying low after reports of police running an investigation on his accounts and that of his alleged 15-year-old victim.
Griffiths is thought to have returned to his luxury property in Bothwell, Lanarkshire, on Wednesday, after being sent home from Celtic’s pre-season training camp in Wales after the allegations emerged.
But a second image has been circulated across social media appearing to be Griffiths responding to a second teenager asking for a picture and saying “you’re (sic) stunning”. The girl seems not to have answered.
It’s not known yet if the exchange is genuine, who the girl is, or how old she is. But Police Scotland said yesterday they were aware of the social media content and are assessing it. Club bosses have also launched their own investigation into Griffiths.
When asked by the Daily Record if they were aware of the second image being circulated on social media a police spokeswoman confirmed: “We are aware of the social media content and the matter is currently being assessed”
Griffiths is believed to be hiding away in the luxurious home he shares with his girlfriend while the investigations are ongoing.
Dental nurse Caitlyn Melville, who has been in a relationship with the father of five for several years, arrived back at his gated home last night after earlier posting clips of her gym workout on social media.

The former Scotland international, who did not feature in the Euro 2020 squad, came under fire on Tuesday after a leaked exchange went viral on social media.
It appeared to show an Instagram account in Griffiths’ name requesting pictures from the under-16s hopeful – who cannot be identified for legal reasons – calling her “ya cutie” and sending a clapping emoji to underwear shot she had shared.
