Celtic’s Stokes also facing SFA punishment for ref rant

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes could join manager Neil Lennon in the Scottish Football Association’s sin bin after the weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Hearts of Midlothian.

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes could join manager Neil Lennon in the Scottish Football Association’s sin bin after the weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Hearts of Midlothian.

A late penalty gave Hearts a 2-1 victory at Hampden on Sunday, infuriating Lennon who confronted referee Euan Norris at the final whistle.

Lennon is facing another rap from the SFA for his actions but Stokes has also been called in for allegedly abusing linesman Willie Conquer.

Stokes is facing a one-match ban after he was reported for offensive, insulting and or/abusive language which will be served in next season’s cup competition.
