Lennon charged with using bad language during game
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been charged with misconduct after being accused of using repeated bad language during his team’s 1-1 draw against St. Mirren in the Scottish Premier League.
Lennon was issued with a notice of complaint by the Scottish Football Association on Wednesday for his alleged “failure to behave in a responsible manner as an occupant of the technical area by repeated use of offensive, insulting and abusive language.”
Microphones appeared to pick up Lennon swearing at St. Mirren captain Jim Goodwin following a tackle near the dugouts during Sunday’s match.
Lennon has until April 10 to respond to the charge.
Celtic has a 13-point lead in the Premier League.
