Lennon Has Ban Reduced.

 Neil Lennon's touchline ban has been cut after the Scottish Football Association admitted his suspension could not be enforced.

Lennon was hit with a four-match ban last month after squaring up to Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist after their Scottish Cup replay at Parkhead.

However, Lennon has already started serving a four-match suspension for a separate incident, relating to an altercation with an official in November.

The SFA believed Lennon's two bans would run consecutively, but Celtic have now successfully argued that they run concurrently.

Lennon will now sit out a total of five matches over the course of his two punishments, returning to the dugout for Celtic's SPL clash with St Mirren on 9th April.
