    I find it very disappointing that he thought it correct to tweet such stuff. Perhaps he ought to think before tapping the keyboard.

    Fair point, but that would still be racist would it not?

    It would be no different if he had tweeted SEB telling him to "$#@! off back to his own country" because he is not a stereotypical, white British citizen. Of course it is racist, James. I wish he would $#@! off out of my football club.

    It's racist, ship him to the South African PL so he can figure it out.

    Then get him the $#@! off our roster.

    Spot on Langers.

    He's meant it in no other way but to cause offence, it's racist because he's assumed he doesn't have the right to be British just because his family is of Asian origin.
    And given that Wolverhampton is an incredibly multi cultural area, and that we have excellent support from groups such as Punjabi Wolves, this utter piece of $#@! should have his contract tore up.

    I'm married to a Dundee girl and we visit Scotland regularly and from personal experience racism isn't as much of an issue up there. I get stick from the in-laws but it's banter and nothing more sinister.

    I'm disgusted with Griffiths and hope we get rid ASAP. This alienates an element of our fanbase and shouldn't be tolerated.

    Get rid of him NOW.

    No room at our club for that $#@!.

    Send a message to other players - tweet, sacked - racist, sacked - reveal club business, sacked - don't try for 90 minutes, sacked.

    I'm not going to get into a debate about it, and I don't think I'm a racist, but what you and I call racism clearly differ. To me, insults and banter don't fall into that category, even if they're a bit nasty and allude to a person's physical or ethnic characteristics. (The test I usually apply is, if someone said that to me, would I consider cry 'racism' or just consider him an idiot? This is a general comment, by the way, and not meant to support Griffiths, whom I still think ought to know better.)

    Defiantly a racist tweet, no doubt about it, get rid of him for good, sick of players like him who are just a disgrace to the game and I hope his career declines from now on. He should be punished not rewarded which remaining at Hibernian is for him as that's where he wants to be, should be stuck in our reserves without pay for the remainder of the season, fails to show up to training which I'm sure he would do, then fine him and just make his life hell till the end of the season and then release him at which point he's lost match fitness and lost teams showing interest in him.

    There are better younger players out there who deserve a chance at a club like Wolves, I can't believe we pay a weekly wage to Hammill and Griffiths.

    The context is different though, your ancestors (immediate or further back) were not discriminated, enslaved or deported because of their race - so you (or I) would naturally be less sensitive to this.

    My wife is not English and was once told to '$#@! off back to your own country', I didn't think much of it, but she was devastated.

    I probably came across a bit of a generalisation, most of Scotland is a fine place with generally really friendly people, but I found in the sites I worked on in Glasgow and Edinburgh that they were quite openly racist in a way that was quite frankly a little bit shocking to be fair, maybe I got a bad impression.

    I am not including the English $#@! off that was everywhere as I don't really count that, nor the vile religious segregation that I found prevalent in Glasgow (for anyone who has any doubt that religious tolerance isn't a good thing, 6 months of living somewhere that you feel hatred exists between two religions makes you appreciate it)

    I have a thought. Griffiths is doing $#@!ing everything to get himself out. Keep him here for six months. Give him no game time. Make the little $#@!e train on his own. Do not let him play for Hibs at all.

    Of course it was meant to be offensive. It doesn't defy logic how to be offensive to people but I would be more interested in what provoked this statement ?

    Moral of the story is that you cannot stomach twitter abuse ( which is most likely what Griffiths had got ) he shouldn't be tweeting. The boy needs to grow up.

    Loan with Hibs now extended till end of season. I assume most people will be glad as he's a complete tosspot. I only hope we find a goalscorer and don't regret not trying him out.
    ......... I had such an hard on, I hadn't got enough skin left to close my eyes !!

    Regardless of what the fans think of him, he has been making clear since the Summer he doesn't want to be at the club. So not an issue of not trying him out as he wants out.

    Even if he turned into Gerd Muller I wouldn't want him near the team after that episode. Players like that we can do without, no matter how good they might or might not be.

    Really?

    Everyone hates Suarez, but there aren't many Prem teams that wouldn't have him playing for them.

    Depends on your principles, doesn't it? I wouldn't want Suarez polluting our shirt.

    to clarify so I don't sound like a pompous arse. If I think that the allegedly racist misdemeanours of Leigh Griffiths are sufficient that he should never play for Wolves on principle (which I do), then by extension the same should apply to Suarez (in a hypothetical situation as we would never be within a billion light years of signing him). For me to think otherwise would be hypocritical, especially if any change on viewpoint was entirely dependent upon the ability of the player.
