CELTIC star Leigh Griffiths has reassured fans it won't be long until he's back in action.

The Hoops ace has taken a break from football to deal with personal issues, manager Brendan Rodgers announced last month.

He took time out of his recovery to respond to a fan's touching video showing some of the 28-year-old's best moments, which was captioned "We're all with Leigh Griffiths".

The 28-year-old wrote: "Not long before I’m back doing all this!"

It comes after the football star hit out at speculation over his break from the game, following a series of pictures allegedly showing the striker at a racetrack.

The pictures were reportedly taken last year and the dad-of-five insisted it had nothing to do with his decision to take time away from the club.

Following the accusations, the club's manager spoke out at a recent press conference in Dubai, where the team are currently training, saying: “I was obviously made aware of it but haven’t seen the pictures of it. The club are dealing with it, it’s a private matter.

“Leigh was off on grounds of his health, so the club are supporting him with that and I’ve nothing much more to say on it until I, one, speak to Leigh. And two see something - but that will not be until I get back.

“I just need to see where it is all at because he is not on holiday. I think it’s one where I will take a deep breath and look at it.

“It’s very important he understands why he is off and why he has been given the time off. Why he has to maximise that time in terms of getting better.

"That’s about getting specialist help and lying low and focussing on the simple things in your life that will allow you to be better.

“I haven’t spoken to him yet. A designated person at the club is dealing with everything with regards to Leigh and I will pick that up when I get back.”
