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 alleged offences 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 semifinal loss to Hearts.

After the Hearts match, Lennon ran onto the Hampden Park pitch to confront referee Euan Norris over the penalty award, which came when a Marius Zaliukas shot hit the arm of Joe Ledley and then brushed against Victor Wanyama. Celtic were then denied a penalty when the ball struck Hearts defender Andy Webster.

The Hoops boss, who did not conduct any post-match interviews, tweeted soon after the game: "Referee told players he thought Wanyama handled...feel so sorry for players and fans..I think it's personal myself."

He then re-tweeted a comment from a Celtic supporter which suggested the club "pack our bags and get out of this league that is run by crooked £SFA officials".

Lennon is halfway through his touchline ban for accusing referee Willie Collum of a "criminal" decision in not awarding Celtic a late penalty in 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 10-point penalty given to Rangers for entering administration.

The Glasgow rivals meet in an Old Firm derby at Celtic's Parkhead ground on Sunday.
