Neil Lennon will be closely involved with tactics and direct communications on Sunday Neil Lennon is looking forward to his return to the Hampden technical area following the end of his touchline ban. Lennon will be directing operations from trackside when Celtic take on Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final on Sunday after returning to the dugout in Tuesday's 1-0 victory in Perth against St Johnstone. Lennon missed a total of five games after being handed two separate SFA punishments. The ban included the Co-operative Insurance Cup final against Rangers when Lennon sat in the Hampden stand as the Hoops lost 2-1 in extra-time.  Understandabley, Lennon is delighted to be closer to the action as Celtic prepare to return to the national stadium. He said: "I really enjoyed being back in the dugout the other night. I felt good, I felt fresh and it felt important to be with the players at that level."
