Lennon receives touchline ban

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been handed a three-match touchline ban after being found guilty of misconduct during the 1-1 draw with St Mirren on March 31. • Muirhead: Hoodoo is broken
The ban, suspended from last season, was brought into action after a disciplinary tribunal found Lennon had breached Disciplinary Rule 203 in his use of offensive language towards St Mirren captain Jim Goodwin. Lennon now has five days to appeal the ban although if it isn't appealed before the weekend he will not be on the touchline for the game against Inverness on Sunday which could see Celtic clinch the title. Lennon later hinted he would make the most of his first chance to air his opinions on the ban with a post on his official Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Celtic expressed their dismay at Lennon's treatment via a statement on the club's official website which read: "Clearly we are extremely surprised and disappointed by today's decision. "Fundamentally the particular disciplinary system in place is absurd - a system where such a case can be brought on the strength of two 'complaints' from people totally unconnected to the match in question, while a fourth official overseeing the technical area during the match makes no mention of any incident to the SFA. "Despite even supportive comments from numerous individuals including Jim Goodwin himself, this judgement has been made, something which we find quite astonishing. "It is clear that this decision will have huge repercussions for the game in Scotland and we are sure Hampden Stadium will be a very busy place now every Monday morning.'' Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
