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.
