Lennon attacked by fan

Published Add your comment

Celtic manager Neil Lennon was attacked at Tynecastle during the Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Hearts after Gary Hooper had put the visitors two goals ahead.

Before the game could restart a fan clambered from the Hearts section of the main stand and made a beeline for the Celtic boss who was on the touchline, leading to an intervention by police and stewards after the fracas ended and the supporter was taken away by police.

Trouble ensued in the Celtic section of the stadium with fans appearing to fight with police and stewards.
