Lennon to appeal touchline ban

19 November 2010 03:01

Neil Lennon has confirmed he will appeal against his automatic two-match dug-out ban for being sent to the stand by referee Craig Thomson during Celtic's defeat by Hearts at Tynecastle over a week ago.

The Hoops' boss will also appeal the separate excessive misconduct conduct charge brought by the SFA following his touchline rant with the fourth official when a penalty claim for handball against Gorgie player Ryan Stevenson was turned down.

The deadline for appealing the automatic ban is Friday and speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Dundee United at Parkhead on Saturday, Lennon said: "I will be appealing Friday."
