Celtic player Leigh Griffiths has been given a suspended two match ban and fined £2,500 after admitting to singing an offensive 'refugee' chant about former Hearts player Rudi Skacel. 

Despite the incident not taking place during a game, a disciplinary tribunal found that the striker was guilty of "not acting in the best interests of Association Football".

Griffiths released a statement, saying: "I made a mistake, I wrongly became involved in this incident and did not fully consider my actions.

"I apologise unreservedly for this."

Twitter reacted angrily with some saying the ban was unjust, while others complained it was too lenient. Here's how it went down.
