After he got caught up in a race row on Twitter Leigh Griffiths has now been formally charged.

Griffiths who is currently on a season-long loan to Scottish side Hibs from Molineux made a racist comment on social media site Twitter.

The 22-year-old who has did apologise, deleted the remark and protected his account soon after he got into an argument with with another twitter user which resulted in Griffiths telling @Zak_Iqbal to: ‘f*** off back to your own country ya clown’.

Wolves were quick to condemn the comments and said that he would face disciplinary procedures from both Hibernian and the Scottish Football Association and now faces the courts.

The Police have said: ‘A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged under the Communications Act in connection with an incident on 10 January 2013.’

He has been bailed to appear at court at a later date.
