'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lennon charged over touchline ban

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been charged by the SFA for breaching his touchline suspension during the recent defeat at Motherwell.

Lennon was ruled to have entered the 'playing zone' within the minimum required fifteen minutes of the final whistle, which he wasn't permitted to do under his current three-game ban imposed for using offensive language.

A hearing has now been set for Thursday 23th May, just three days before Celtic face Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final. That could in turn witness Lennon confined to the stands at Hampden Park.

The latest incident occurred after Lennon was angered as referee Euan Norris awarded the Fir Park side a penalty following Charlie Mulgrew's challenge on goalscorer Henrik Ojamaa during the 3-1 defeat.
