    Celtic Football Club statement

    By: Newsroom Staff on 18 Apr, 2013 19:58

  • NEIL Lennon has been given a three-match touchline ban after being found guilty of misconduct by an SFA Tribunal. It relates to complaints made that he used 'offensive language' during Celtic's recent match against St Mirren in Paisley.
     
    Following this decision, Celtic Football Club have released the following statement.
     
    ´Clearly we are extremely surprised and disappointed by today´s decision. Fundamentally the particular disciplinary system in place is absurd - a system where such a case can be brought on the strength of two ´complaints´ from people totally unconnected to the match in question, while a fourth official overseeing the technical area during the match makes no mention of any incident to the SFA.
     
    ´Despite even supportive comments from numerous individuals including Jim Goodwin himself, this judgement has been made, something which we find quite astonishing.
     
    ´It is clear that this decision will have huge repercussions for the game in Scotland and we are sure Hampden Stadium will be a very busy place now every Monday morning.´
