Neil Lennon: Gets three-match ban

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has had a three-match suspended touchline ban triggered after being found guilty of misconduct during the Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against St Mirren on March 31, the Scottish Football Association has confirmed.

A Disciplinary Tribunal found the Northern Irishman had breached part of Disciplinary Rule 203 in his use of offensive language against Saints skipper Jim Goodwin although no sanction was imposed.

However, Lennon had a three-match suspension hanging over him from last season which will now be served, although the former Celtic skipper has five working days to launch an appeal.

If Lennon does not appeal before the weekend he will be in the stand for Celtic's SPL home game against Inverness on Sunday where the Hoops can clinch the title.

The Parkhead boss was suspended for three matches in May 2012, having been found guilty of breaching three rules after rushing on to the pitch at full-time following the Hoops' William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Hearts at Hampden to confront referee Euan Norris.

Lennon also received an additional suspended three-match ban which was to come into effect if any act of misconduct was committed by him before the end of this season.
