New Delhi: Disciplinary action would be taken against Olivier Giroud after he apologised for taking a female companion back to the team hotel.
Married Giroud had consistently denied taking Celia Kay to the Four Seasons Hotel in Canary Wharf the night before the 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on February 2.
The striker had earlier issued a grovelling apology to his wife Jennifer and the Arsenal boss after a picture by the pin-up appeared in a national newspaper.
Celia Kay pictured Giroud in just his pants hours before Arsenal were due to meet Crystal Palace. Groveling Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has taken to twitter to apologise to his wife after he was pictured in a hotel room with a model Kay, who models for international magazines such as Maxim and FHM, was pictured arriving at the Four Seasons hotel in Canary Wharf at 12.50am and leaving at 3.04am that night.
She insists she did not have sex with the 6ft 4in striker, who avoided a club fine when claims were made by Kay last week, insisting to Wenger that no meeting had taken place.
‘Olivier knows the truth and the fact that he lied about us is pathetic,' Kay told the Sun on Sunday. The model was pictured arriving and leaving the Arsenal team hotel just hours before their match against Crystal Palace.
Kay revealed her meeting with Giroud last week but the striker denied any wrongdoing and avoided a fine.
The Gunners planned to fine the star up to £230,000 but backed off after his denial. His lawyers also sent a series of letters to the newspaper denying any wrongdoing.
Giroud came on as a second half substitute for Arsenal yesterday and will face Roberto Martinez's side on the weekend of March 8.
