Leigh Griffiths has vowed to shake off his bad-boy image after joining Hibernian on-loan for a second spell.

The 21-year-old Wolves striker scored 11 times in his first stay at Easter Road, including a late winner against Aberdeen in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

His time there, though, was marred by being banned on three separate occasions following gestures made to fans during encounters with Rangers, Cowdenbeath and St Johnstone.

But the controversial striker insists he will be remembered for the right reasons a second time around rather than 'stupidity'.

He said: "When there were rumours that I was coming back, some Hibs fans were saying things like 'we don't want him back because of the stupidity' and I am trying to change for the better.

"Hopefully, those same supporters will see me in the first few games of the season and realise that I am trying to improve in that respect.

"The first time I was banned should have been a learning curve for me, but I still got banned three times. You know after the third time that you are just being stupid."
