Celtic boss Lennon to contest up to five SFA charges

Celtic's Neil Lennon will today face up to Scottish Football Association chiefs at Hampden to face two of five potential charges against him.

The Hoops boss will first fight charges against him from last month's League Cup final loss to Kilmarnock and Old Firm defeat at Rangers.

Lennon criticised referee Willie Collum for not awarding a penalty to his side in the Killie loss before he was sent away from the touchline for approaching Calum Murray at half-time of the Ibrox clash where he was reported for using foul language.

There are also three charges pending - two which occurred on Sunday when Celtic were beaten in the Scottish Cup semi-final by Heart of Midlothian - and one which stems from comments leading up to a league match with St Johnstone recently.

It is believed that Derek Ogg QC, a senior advocate depute, and close friend of Paul McBride could be among Lennon's defence team at Hampden.
