Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon denies claims that he was assaulted by loanee striker Leigh Griffiths.

Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon has denied reports that he was assaulted by loanee striker Leigh Griffiths during a training session yesterday afternoon.

Stories had claimed that Griffiths headbutted Fenlon, before going on to punch his assistant manager Billy Brown.

The 21-year-old was expected to return to his parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers in the near future.

However, Fenlon has insisted that the centre-forward remains a "key part" of his plans for the remainder of the season.

"As is usual for high-tempo training sessions, involving committed players and coaching staff, robust views and opinions are shared, and yesterday's session was no different," said Fenlon.

"Leigh is a quality striker, and a lively personality, and will remain a key part of my team for the rest of the season. There's nothing at all in the story."

Griffiths joined Hibs on a loan basis last August.
