Lennon charged with misconduct by SFA

The Scottish FA has charged Hibernian boss Neil Lennon with misconduct following his celebrations after his side scored a last-minute equaliser against Rangers on Sunday.

Lennon has been issued with a notice of complaint after he ran onto the pitch in celebration of Jamie Maclaren’s stoppage-time goal which secured a point for Hibs in the 5-5 draw at Easter Road.

He was then quickly ushered down the tunnel by fourth official Bobby Madden before the final whistle blew.

Lennon is already sitting on a suspended two-match ban after a bust-up with referee Kevin Clancy during his side’s fixture against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in February.

He was given a five-match ban for misconduct in the aftermath of that game and missed three matches with immediate effect. He was told the remaining two-game suspension would only be applied if he committed misconduct again before the end of 2018.

An SFA disciplinary hearing will take place on Monday, May 21.
