Celtic manager Neil Lennon "deeply" regrets confronting Euan Norris after the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final defeat by Hearts and plans to apologise to the referee.

Lennon, who has just served a two-match touchline ban for criticising Scottish Communities League Cup final referee Willie Collum, has been issued with a notice of complaint accusing him of breaching three SFA rules relating to Hearts' 2-1 victory at Hampden.

Lennon ran on to the pitch to confront Norris over the handball decision that led to Craig Beattie's penalty winner, which came just before Celtic were denied a similar claim.
