Lennon hit with new SFA charge

Celtic manager Neil Lennon was hit with fresh misconduct charges by the Scottish Football Association (SFA) on Thursday.

The latest charges concerning Lennon, halfway through serving a touchline ban for comments made after Celtic's Scottish League Cup final defeat, relate to incidents after the Hoops' Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Hearts.

Lennon is halfway through his touchline ban for comments made on a referee decision after their 1-0 defeat by Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup final last month. He received no additional punishment after being sent from the dugout halfway through Celtic's 3-2 Scottish Premier League defeat by Rangers last month.

Earlier this month Celtic wrapped up the SPL title, having been helped on their way by a ten-point penalty given to Rangers for entering administration. The Glasgow rivals meet in an Old Firm derby at Celtic's Parkhead ground on Sunday.
