Lennon Apologises

Last updated : 21 August 2005 By Kevin Smith
Neil Lennon has apologised to Celtic and Celtic supporters for his behaviour after the final whistle in yesterday's Old Firm defeat at Ibrox.

Lennon said, "I spoke to the referee about his performance and he then showed me a red card while I was shaking hands with the Rangers players.

"Clearly, although I felt the red card - my first in the SPL - was totally unjustified, I understand that my reaction was wrong.

"I apologise for my reaction towards the referee and his assistant and I also apologise to Celtic and our supporters."

Lennon will now face a hefty suspension - possibly up to eight games.
