Neil Lennon will face an additional Scottish Football Association charge following his dismissal in Celtic's 2-0 defeat by Hearts, it has been confirmed. Referee Craig Thomson has accused Lennon of "excessive misconduct" after he reacted angrily to fourth official Steven McLean amid protests over a denied penalty claim.
The Hoops boss already faced an automatic two-match ban after being sent to the stand in last Wednesday's stormy Clydesdale Bank Premier League encounter at Tynecastle.
However, he confirmed on Sunday he planned to appeal against that statutory ban and would be reading through Thomson's match report.
The report included the additional charge, which is due to be heard at the SFA's disciplinary committee meeting on December 7.
